Overheard conversations: one

I was just in Ayres (natch), ogling up the mince pies when I heard two women conversing thus:

Woman 1: She turned round to me and said "I think you've got that wrong" and I turned round to her and said "No I haven't actually" and then she turned round to me and said "No, I'm right, you're wrong" and so I turned round to her and said "No I'm right and you're wrong" and then she turned round to me and said "Don't even go there!"

Woman 2: She didn't! What you should've done was turn round to her and said "Prove to me you're in the right then!"

Woman 2: Yeah but she'd have just turned round to me and said "No, you prove it to me" and I'd have turned round to her and said "Up yours"

With all this "turning around", naked agression and soothing hisses emanating from the hot chocolate machine I got so dizzy I requested five puff pastry mince pies instead of three.

Why do people say that 'so I turned around and said . . . ?'

Did they have their arms folded just under their bust a la Les Dawson too. Oh sheesh, I'm showing my age now aren't I?

Puff pastry mince pies? I thought only I made those... (shop bought puff pastry, obviously). And apparantly, fyi Tara, the reason those women that Les Dawson based that sketch on did that funny not speaking thing was because they all learnt to lip read in 't mills because the machinery was so loud. (I learnt that just the other - sorry just 't other day, and have been waiting to pass it on ever since!).

pushers that are integrated in the particular profile of the particular watch, adding a unitary feeling. To help the particular wearers adjust time easily, a crown and two pushers are fixed on the lateral right side of the watch. Running inside the magnificient watch is an ETA quartz movement, a extraordinarily practical and faithful mechanism. Its dial is quite ingenious and it demonstrates three white gold sub-dials with a matching date funciton presented in a square window at 4 oclock position.Vacheron Constantin replica watches

All about me

My photo
Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
