Mind you, as a result of those investigations I had to have one of those colonoscopy jobs. You know those Christmas cracker whistles which have paper tubes that unroll when you blow them? Well the first eighteen inches of your bowels from your arse upwards is like that, all flattened until there's a bit of action going on. So they can't get a proper look up there unless they pump it full of air. Well what goes up must come down. Panic-stricken, I told the nurse, who was hovering three inches above my arse, that I couldn't hold on and that I was about to "break wind" (one does have to assume that one is in polite company). "Good heavens, my dear, that happens every time! Just let rip whenever you like and don't mind me!"

There's something shockingly unfamiliar, chaps, about a situation in which you are pointing your bare arse into a woman's face, knees under your chin, and are granted licence to fart thereat. I got away with it by pretending that the nurse was Margaret Thatcher, and I told her so. She approved wholeheartedly!

Oh Mrrzy, I get terribly flustered by policemen. They were stopping random motorists near us a few years ago. You had to pull in to a lay-by and answer some questions for their survey. The officer asked my age (cheeky thing!) then asked how long I'd been driving. (No idea) He asked where I'd been (cheeky again!) I just blurted out any old answer.
Then he asked where I lived and I told him the last village, not the present one. When he asked if I wore glasses I said, "No." (They were on my nose) Then he asked my car's registration number. I couldn't for the life of me remember it, so I told him just to look at the plate on the car. He gave me a very 'old-fashioned look' and waved me on.
He must have thought I was an escapee from an old folks' home. I'm probably on all their computers now...

Same occasion - when pulled over, I was so mad I actually said And I wasn't even going as fast as I was GOING to be going! That was before I said the thing about the drivers' license. I was *really* mad - I had only just decided it was worth the risk to speed up some to get home before I fell asleep.

The wallet in the pawn shop story reminded me of getting pulled over, and not seeing my drivers' license in its usual spot, so I asked the cop, Maybe the cop that pulled me over last week didn't give it back?

New England folk have a way of saving up "rs" from some places, and inserting them in others...so...when they need a little quick money, do they go to a "pahn" shop, or to a "porn" shop ?

Sat with my friend years ago at her husband's business dinner (very grand affair in long dress etc) yapping away happily as usual. Rabbited on about my daft father giving me a gigantic bottle of cognac for Christmas when I don't even drink spirits and hate the stuff. Friend's husband then hands me a surprise gift wrapped in tissue paper.

You go into a seedy pawn shop which does Western Union transfers, stand in a queue with a dubious bunch of ne'er-do-wells and send money to Africa.
You get to the checkout in Tesco and find your wallet with all your bank cards is not in your bag. You realise you've left it on the counter at the pawn shop.
Filled with dread you hurtle back through busy traffic to the pawn shop, gasping for breath and purple in the face.
A lovely old druggie/alcoholic chap has handed in your wallet to the pawnbroker. It's safe and sound.
You hand a tenner to the poor chap, who's slumped on a chair in the corner, stammer your heartfelt thanks and totter out.

This happened to me only last week!

A rather pompous and plump vicar we had years ago was very 'high church' and liked incense and all that. Once he genuflected reverently at the moment of Consecration and let rip an extremely loud fart. It reverberated all round the church. I thought I'd need an ambulance, I was utterly helpless with giggles.
