Top Shelf


Written last night 20.30 pmI am writing this at Manchester airport.....Terminal 1 ......the arrival hall.
The Prof's plane is late
I've just been told off by the woman in charge of WH SMITH for pulling all of the zombie magazines  onto the floor when reaching for an old Walking Dead magazine.
It could have been worse.....it could have been the porn shelf!
I got all in a fluster and broke wind rather loudly during the scrabble to pick everything up
Apart from this......,
I've had a lovely day.
A Non stop catch up with old friend Cheryl over three hours of lunch in a nice restaurant in Chester was so therapeutic, literally as my old mate is now a much talented psychotherapist!
We've both done a great deal in two decades!
It was lovely to touch base again
Hey ho

  1. Okay. You made me smile. The magazine avalanche, the breaking of wind (an old friend of mine's mother used to call this "a burp in the pants") and the joy of catching up with an old and dear friend.
    Who is a psychotherapist. Does she ever work by SKYPE?

  3. How delightful to play catch-up with an old friend. I wonder how she would relate the account.

  4. I'd break out in a good laugh if I was there to see it happen. Sometimes when it happens I ask for the name of the "Charm School" my wife attended. Have a great weekend.

  5. Oh John, I laugh and giggle at your mishaps and know that I would be a blob of embarrassment and shame if anything like that happened to me.
    I am glad you had a lovely day ..

  6. Glad that you and Cheryl are glad that you had that reunion. Maybe you will even get together again before the next decade?

    Waiting for late arriving planes is a drag. I always bring along my knitting project...which was good on that rainy day of my Nov flight to London from JFK. The flight was delayed because the BA flight crew were stalled in vehicle traffic on its way from Manhattan to JFK. Finally the cast arrived and the curtain went up, and I even got an upgrade to business class. xo

    1. Those upgrades do make a person more forgiving, don't they ? :)

  7. It's good to find an old friend and find both happy and healthy.

  9. You should have done like my late father used to do. Turn around and say "Here, kitty, kitty!"

  10. Salvador Dali was a great believer in farting. You're in good company.

    2. Ben Franklin too, I'm pleased to read. A real rasper is like a badge of honour, unlike the sneaky sbd (silent but deadly) where they pretend to cough lightly, usually in lifts between floors, and then look about innocently.

  11. Are you sure it wasn't someone else's shoe squeaking?? You're either eating too much roughage .... or not enough - a scotch egg should stabilise things!

  12. Your making rather a habit of these 'backfires'. It's getting to sound a mite worrying - though not half as bad as for those in the vicinity at the time. Have you tried a cork? ('CORK', I said!)

  13. There are magazines for zombies? Really?

    ReplyDelete
  14. You were told off for dropping magazines ? Surely it was an accident ? followed by another !

    ReplyDelete
  15. John, I'm extremely worried by your inner health. You seem to fart far too easily. I do think you should see a nurse about this problem!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Question of the day: do zombies fart?

  17. When one accidentally knocks stuff over in a shop, it is of course customary to trumpet one's apology with a resounding fart.

  18. Airports can be so much fun, glad to hear that lunch was good and good for you.

  19. You are a messy pup John! Did you buy the magazine?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Getting to spend time with an old friend that you have not seen in many years had to be such an upper.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Actually, there is a book by Benjamin Franklin called FART PROUDLY.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Did you say, "Well, that's because you so badly organized all these magazines onto overcrowded shelves!" Or maybe it's not worth it to get into a pissing match at WH Smith.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well, you could have said, I was going to buy all of these dear lady, but since you have been rude I will just put them back.

  24. According to Dr. Oz years ago on Oprah, healthy humans should fart, on average, 14 times a day. Sounds like you're healthy (no pun intended).

  25. Sounds like you paid her back, royally. LOL

  26. How is Aunt Gladie doing? I miss her. Please greet her for me (us)

  27. Stick a whistle up you butt so we know you are on your way. Nothing wrong with a toot and whistle. Its just fair warning.
