While drinking coffee at a table with others, I won a packet of cream biscuits in a raffle, and put them on the table in front of me.
Someone said, “I love that type of biscuit”.
Trying to be funny, I put my arm around the packet and drew it close to me.
In the process, I knocked my coffee cup off the table, spilling coffee all over the floor.
Is this a sign of early dementia?
Jen, please don’t take me quite so seriously.
Most of what I say is meant to be light-hearted.
That doesn’t mean it can’t have a serious under-current, but most times it is said with twinkling eye and tongue in cheek.
I would be horrified if what I said was the cause of even a morsel of distress.
With a bad report card, father xmas might well pass me by this year.
Or worse still, I might find myself rostered on for baby-sitting duties.
At my high school I was told my humour was very ‘dry’.
Seems it still is.
Thank you for pointing it out.
I will try to make it less so in future.
But I might be fighting a battle I cannot win.
