It's A Knockout!

Between Winnie and Mary,  Sorrel has suffered the onslaught of cups of coffee knocked from hands, masturbation on slippers , giant paws bashing perfectly well coiffured outfits and food stolen from plates when her  back has been turned..
At various points in the day,loud  shrieks can be regularly heard as Welsh terrier gleefully ambushes old lady as she potters around at her ablutions.
It's great sport!
Sorrel is not really a dog lady

I shall leave you with this old blog post from a few years ago...I know it's lazy blogging but it made me laugh when I re read it....it kind of captures Sorrel so well
Enjoy

The Prof made himself comfortable as Sorrel and I had a chat about nothing....these "nothing"conversations drive him to distraction.......which makes them even more entertaining.
Sorrel " I love slices mango and melon"
John: " Do you?........I am a bit partial to pineapple chunks myself"
Sorrel: " Really?"
The Prof " harrumphs" at this point.
John " yes......especially tinned pineapples"
Sorrel" thats strange, I would have thought you'd go for fresh

Brief silence

Sorrel: " Do you like raspberries John?"
John " I've gone off them a bit "
Sorrel " hum"
John:" they are a bit bland, the ones from the supermarket"

Sorrel " What about strawberries?"
The Prof then sighs very loudly and shifts in his deck chair
John" Oh I love stawberries ! ........"
Sorrel " I love them too"
Prof ( under his breath ) " oh For fuck's sake"

Long silence

Sorrel " John......what Are your thoughts on passion fruit?"
The Prof screaming into the wind " OH MY GOD........I WAS ADOPTED!!!!!!"

  1. What larks. I was wondering if the 'slippers of sex' might be making an appearance. Have you played your Joker yet? (Five minutes with the bachelor bantams, perhaps!)

  8. I can't find it in me to feel sorry for Chris somehow, even though I feel as though I should. Perhaps he needs some "lightening up" drops, if you can find such a thing. If not, a good dollop or two of Scotch might make a good substitute.

    I hope Sorrel enjoys her stay.

  9. Poor Sorrel. That is one very good sport. And thanks for re-sharing the old post. Very entertaining (no matter what the Prof may say).

  10. I take it that the Prof isn't a fan of small talk? :)

  11. Bless her heart! I bet she enjoys every minute of it truth be known. If she not a dog lover, maybe not the dogs. Nothing wrong with re-posting old posts especially the ones that give you insight or a smile when re-reading,,, but this comes from the Thursday Throwback king of post so take it for what its worth.

  12. I was able to hold conversations with J's mother that drove him crazy! I hope he didn't marry me because I reminded him of his mother.

  13. I had such a good laugh at the fruit conversation!

  14. A perfectly reasonable conversation if you ask me.

  15. Thanks, you made me laugh, again. I'm afraid I'd be at the Prof's end of the conversation. -Jenn

  16. Poor Sorrel, I imagine she'll think twice before her next visit.

  17. I love conversations about nothing..they are peaceful and no one (except perhaps the prof) gets upset.

  18. The reference to masturbation distracted me as I wasn't sure of the status post hysterectomy. So she's recovered and retained those "needs", huh? You and the Prof and the MAIL are a gem!

  19. I did laugh at the dialogue. Did Sorrel ask the questions to you tongue in cheek knowing it would drive her son slightly insane? Or was she simply trying to make small talk?

  20. Very funny conversation about nothing of any importance ! How frustrating for the Prof. though - bet Sorrel was just trying to annoy him !
    Not really surprising that she isn't a dog lady after she's suffered at the paws of yours !

  21. Sorrel sounds like a great ma-in-law to have. I love random chats. My oldest daughter and me rattle on for hours about paint colours. The husband sits there twitching! hehehe x

  22. I can relate so well to the Prof....

  23. I like watermellon, grapes, peaches and nectarines...oh oh must not forget a tangerine and a nice tart granny smith apple. There should be more fruit conversations. Not so fond of the mangoes unless in in a fruit salsa..i should convetse with Sorrel.

  24. Oh, John, this is such a classic! I read it out loud to my husband and we were laughing so hard! Soooooo funny!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've had these conversations and I've also been witness to these conversations - it's more fun to be in the first camp :)

  26. I loved reading that especially since I live with a Retired Man and many of our conversations go like that.

  27. Poor Sorel - I am definitely a dog person, but I only stand so much ambushing before I'm a The Dog Needs To Be Outside sort of person... If Chris can't cope with the speed of the conversation, he can always go off to a far corner and read quietly, can't he? His darling Mother is, after all, HIS, come on Chris, you'll cope!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh the nothing conversation did make me woop! The same happens with my MIL and I - we fill letters with inane things that entertain us and totally baffle and annoy MrC. I find her deightful and he finds her exasperating!

  29. Hahahaha! Just like Andrew round my family, except he doesn't actually scream anything, only thinks it. :D

  30. Sorrel is a delight. She's enjoying you all! Those who love us don't mind the menagerie we have around us. We just delight in the moment. 😊
