OG DIGS A HOLE FOR HIMSELF

“ Do you know, you have turned into a really nice woman” my face must have been a picture

“ Like I wasn’t always a nice woman?” OG looked uncomfortable and then started digging.

“Well, you were but you went through a bit of a transitional stage….”

“Stop, stop right there. Warning! Hole! Stop digging!”

“..but..”

“No, seriously, STOP”. Good job he is taking chemo otherwise I might have killed him.

At last, he can see that perfectly-formed young cowgirl that the rest of us have seen for so long ...

There is a condition, temporary of course, called chemo-brain. I'm sure he's just momentarily muddling you up with someone else! I have seen nothing but perfection on this blog!

Men often say things that they don't mean but they just can't seem to stop themselves saying it. My mum once said to me as we drove past a group of builders-bums, "men are always digging holes". How right she was.

omg! that's hilarious!! i burst out laughing. men are brilliant aren't they! they just can't get that brain into gear before they've put their tongues on turbo. i once had expensive hair colour put in (after box job went really badly wrong and i went quite red - tresses and face). when i got home husband said, looking hugely relieved despite fact i'd just spent 100 quid at the hairdressers, ''oh thank god for that, you used to look like a right slapper''! marvellous.

Why DogLover, you ARE an old smoothy aren't you!?

Tell me Linda, can I claim chemo-brain as "mitigating circumstances"?

Out of the mouths of babes and mums huh? Loved that story Crystal.

It's all a matter of perpective Anthea. If my husband called me a right slapper I would have taken it as a compliment but, unfortunately, those days are well past.

Men do have that tendency don't they?

He doesn't need a shovel - he already has a front hole-digger.

(gosh - that looks really bad in type doesn't it?)
