A-Z Challenge Day 24

1.  Rosey took her sewing kit on a train to repair a rip in her skirt during the journey. When the handsome young man sitting alongside stood up to leave he found Rosey had accidentally sewn her skirt to his jacket!

2.  Whilst queuing in Starbucks, Rosey mentioned James, a prospective new boyfriend. “He told me he’s a barrister,” she said proudly. Rosey’s mouth dropped open when James the barista served our coffee!

3.  Once in church, she asked me if sanctified wine was another name for Sancerre! I was worried in case whilst receiving communion she’d ask if they had any Chardonnay. Fortunately, she didn’t.

4.  She told me once that she tiptoes past her medicine cabinet to avoid waking up her sleeping pills.

5. She was worried she had diseased feet. “Look, brown spots”. I pointed out they formed a pattern just like the circular cutouts on the Crocs she wore.

“Suntan?”  asked she.

“Yep” said I.

6. You are often unsure if she’s joking or being serious like when she said that nine out of ten injections are given in vain.  

7.  I saw Rosey in the mall yesterday. She was returning some jeans to for a refund because they had holes in them. She showed me.

“Rosey”I said, “they are distressed jeans, they are meant to…..’‘

“They are distressed?’ she interrupted. “What about me?”

“You must be mortified” I quipped.

“Mortified? I’m not dead!”

I received one her looks that make me feel like I’m the ditsy one!

8.  The other day she said ducks wake up at the quack of dawn. Then she said “What do you call a cat that’s swallowed a duck? A fat-duck-filled pus!”

“I think you mean a ‘duck-filled fatty-pus,” I said. She didn’t understand.

9.  Rosey saw a helium-filled balloon straining skyward, and it made her think. She’d just posted a fragile package, and if she could have wrapped it with helium-filled bubble wrap it may have weighed less! I said if she invented a helium bra, she would probably weigh less too!

10.  She once said “Every day is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present”.

    Oh my. I have been known to sew a garment to something I was wearing. Tell Rosey it happens to the best of us.

      I shall, although I have a sneaking suspicion she may have known what she was doing!

    Tell Rosey I know just how she suffers when the world is full of wise crackers. I told my daughter we had friends for dinner last week and she asked, “Did they taste good?”

    “Distressed jeans” are incomprehensible in any language. You really have to shop with both eyes open these days.

      Another Rosey! If my friend reads your comment she’ll wonder why your daughter’s comment was amusing! Cheers Christine

    Couldn’t decide which one was the best. I think I’ll settle for tip toeing past the sleeping pills.

    Ha ha ha. Nine out of ten injections are indeed given in vain, the body is healed by the pills while they are sleeping 🙂

      It’s not a very good joke Emily! I’s wordplay on duck-billed platypus but Rosey bless her got it muddled!!

    Breaking into happy song between barista and helium bras.
    Cheers Rosey.

    Oh that Rosey. She’s like having a carney at your beck and call.

    Hi Keith – I think Rosey needs to re-evaluate your friendship … as regards your thoughts on XI … but they’re all such fun … cheers Hilary


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 27, 2018 / 17:02

      They were fun to write and I’m pleased that came across. Two days more Hilary!


      • hilarymb Apr 27, 2018 / 18:48

        Probably a good thing … as I need to return to school … my XI should be IX … #9 to be precise and her bra size … if I was Rosey … I’d be spitting rose thorns … I thought about this as I wandered down the farm road to pick up the post and paper with bright blue skies and tall trees above me … and birds singing – why Rosey and her Roman numerals should pop into my head … I’ve no idea!! Still hot weather here now …


      • Keith's Ramblings Apr 27, 2018 / 21:40

        Rosey has that effect on people! She’s been popping into my head all month. Enjoy the weather you lucky thing!

    Duck-filled fatty pus might just be the greatest thing I’ve ever heard! Amazing, Keith.
