Fear not! Football may have been ditched by fickle fans in favour of cricket as the weather warms up, but the sororal competition continues unabated.
Followers of this blog may be interested to learn the pathology report for The Other’s recently removed knob-oma came back with a disappointingly indeterminate ‘envenomated’. The absence of proof that The Other’s bite was definitely caused by a redback may not entitle The Other’s sister to her husband’s Ka-Ching, but it has still left her with a wide but knowing grin on her dial.
My lovely Aunt Fruitcake has made her annual trip south for the summer, arriving in Frankston today. Coincidentally, The Other’s sister is also at Frankston while her hubby –aka Spiderman – recovers from knee surgery in a local horse’s piddle.
Naming names – while changing names to protect the innocent – let us now christen The Other “Daisy” and her younger sister “Geranium”.
Aunt Fruitcake’s two daughters are, in a different order of preference, named “Geranium” and “Daisy”.
Tonight, Geranium Other suggested to Aunt Fruitcake that Geranium must be Aunt’s favourite name if she named her first daughter Geranium rather than Daisy.
To this, Aunt Fruitcake replied that it was Uncle Fruitcake who had liked the name Geranium, while she had given her favourite name – Daisy – to her second daughter.
What’ll it be customers, KA-CHING or OUCH?
