You often hear the expression…..
‘You couldn’t make it up’
Well, this is one of those occasions when you need
to give the old chops a slap and say did that really happen ?
What exactly ?
Brace yourself !
Exam number 2 was safely dispatched and a merry group
assembled in Byron’s for burgers and frivolity
So far, so relaxed
Then it was off to the West End for an appointment with the
G-moll’s fringe trimmer…..
Strange but true ! ! !
Except that the G.-moll had a beef she needn’t to get off her chest
Basically the accusation was the Groover had been consorting with
the enemy (male and old and not really an issue)
A vehement denial was proffered to no avail
The G-moll was having none of it
More vehement denials
Conciliatory pleas fell on deaf ears
Straightforward requests for taking this up at home
fell on stony ground
More akin to excruciating
Suddenly a fresh voice enters the fray
‘Oy, get off his case’
Girl to the right of the G-man decides to get involved
‘He can talk to whoever he wants to’
‘I have had to listen to this for twenty minutes’
Go on girl ! ! !
The G.-moll was nearly speechless…..
But she did attempt some kind of defence of her position
The ‘interventionist’ was undeterred
The female ‘have-a-go’ hero was not going to demur
Go on girl ! ! !
Suddenly a voice behind the Groover chirruped up
‘Take it home, we don’t want to hear it’
Go on, my son ! ! !
This was getting weird
The ‘have-a-go’ ladette batted on
‘Just get off his case’
Then a new player entered the scene…..
…..the bloke in front started backing the ‘have-a-go’ bird
The G-man had a bloody army forming to take his side
The G-moll looked at the G-man as if to say…………………
Nothing doing, Babe
You got yourself into this mess, now you get yourself out
Then, if one didn’t think it could get any better it did……
The female avenger to the G-man’s right got to her feet and…..
…..started to leave to get off the bus…..
…..but before departed she had one parting shot for the G-moll…..
‘You are an attractive older man, you could get something better
Resisting the temptation to punch the air…..
…..and the urge to get her mobile number
The G-man closed his eyes and dreamed of the last time he got
…..No, this is not good for the old B.P.
Groover 1 Exams 0
Groover 1 G-moll -7
Time for liquid refreshment…..
…..Off to the Rambler’s Rest and…..
…..with a very chastened G-moll in tow
…..a little ‘Black Bull’ bitter by Theakstons…..
…..family owned and still making great beer since 1827
Three actually but I had a lot to smile about
