Botty Troubles


It looks as though The Prof has a rather nasty bout of food poisoning.
A case of a dodgy prawn quiche in Dublin airport he thinks.
I think it's a case of too much work, not enough sleep coupled with a bad prawn but what do I know?
" Do you think it could be EBola?" The Prof asked weakly from his deathbed this morning
" There's not a great deal of EBola in North Wales" I replied.
This morning's convalescence has only been interrupted the once when Albert
brought a live sparrow into the bedroom, with all four dogs hysterically in tow
I was busy preparing a light toast breakfast, so the first thing I heard of the event was the Prof 
croaking a rather muted " Bird BIRD! B-I-R-D" in an effort not to raise his abdominal pressure too much
Luckily the sparrow escaped through the open bathroom window before it was gassed to death
( if you get my drift)

  8. Shit does seem to play a massive part in your domestic - and working - life, and that's not being judgemental. How do you cope with it all?

  10. Oh my...poor Chris and poor John and even poor Albert. The bird was the only one who had a shot at a decent day. Tell Chris we are thinking of him over here in Canada and wish him a speedy recovery.

  11. An attack of food poisoning can make a person wish for Ebola.

  12. LOL! Never a quiet, boring day in your household!
    Poor Chris, here's hoping he feels better soon and you don't get it in case it's a bug, not food poisoning!
    Albert knew exactly the treatment required lol! xxx

  13. The Prof is of a certain age and a learned person, yet he indulges in such risk taking behaviour by consuming a prawn quiche, and in Dublin no less. Did he choose the cheap Denmark flight option?

  14. May this case of dire rear be an especially short one...

  15. Good job you saved him from the flight.

  16. Never a dull moment!

  17. Whatever you do you, and however much you're tempted, do NOT try to raise his spirits by doing jokes or funny acts. If he laughs the consequences could be most......'unsavoury'.

    1. So in other words, he'll clean up his act........ one way or the other?

    2. He jolly well better, J, in whatever way is called for!

  18. Poor Prof, and you!

    Surely you've earned a Scotch egg..... and halo.... by now!

  20. Oh, how embarrassing for him.

  21. EBOLA!!! It's amazing how the mind works when you feel like death warmed over. Hope Chris is feeling better soon and things get back to 'normal' for you.

  22. Billy Connolly said, on stage, "never trust a fart after the age of sixty" but I can belive that it applies much earlier...

  23. Ugh. I am always suspicious of prawns when I eat out. I'm suspicious of them at home, too, come to think of it.

    1. I was thinking that! Who buys a prawn quiche in an airport and expects to be unscathed?

  24. Feel better soon Prof!

    The smell of dettol still makes me think of childhood tummy bugs, and yes it was either lucozade or flat lemonade.
