True romance

My mother and father:

"Now what are you doing? I'm trying to read the paper."

"I'm holding your hand, love. Doesn't that send a thrill of excitement through your body?"

"Not especially. I hope your hands are clean."

"You used to like me holding your hand when we were courting."

"If I let you have two free hands you'd have eaten all my sweets."


Jimmy Bastard said...

Love it.

Gaw said...

Lovely stuff. Alanbennettesque.

savannah said...

delightful, sugar! xoxox

KAZ said...

I don't suppose 'eaten all my sweets' could mean something rude could it?
After all - you were listening.

Madame DeFarge said...

Would they need to put their teeth in first?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Jimmy and Gareth: ta lads

Savannah: and ta milady

Kaz: no: my dad enjoys trying to shock his children

Madame DF: not if my niece had been trying to avoid the hard centres

my dad enjoys trying to shock his children

Role reversal - don't you just love it?!

Major D'Omo said...

I've just realized. You are Peter Tinniswood in disguise and I claim my five quid.

Gadjo Dilo said...

:-) Sweets, though - did they start courting a very young age? (I was expecting the word "chips").

Libbie said...

I love your mother and father.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Scarlet: I've never been able to shock them, which seems a abit unfair.

Major: it's working up north that does it; God knows what I'd be like working in Yorkshire.

Gadjo: they didn't let you take chips into the pictures (that's where all the courting was done in the 1950s)

Libbie: thank you. I suspect I do, to.
