.. when a 69 year-old man is asked at the supermarket to confirm that he is over 16 when he buys a packet of indigestion tablets isn't it? That's what happened to Mr Fixit this morning.
On a different topic altogether, can a person get a divorce from her satnav? You remember I had troubles with Tom last week when he MADE me drive into the big scary city? Well, earlier this week he caused me even more trouble. We decided to go to the Royal Horticultural Society place at Harlow Carr for lunch at Betty's. (I went there with my friends Bilbo, Sewali and Mrs Flummery a couple of months ago.) Anyway, it is about 25 miles north of here, and in the past I've always ignored Tom completely and gone my own way to get there, but this time, for some reason, I thought I'd do what I was told. That was a BIG mistake. The route he took us was about 40 miles! That meant we got to Betty's late and there was a queue for tables. We don't do queues. We turned round, came back home and went to a nearby hotel restaurant. Now, don't you think I have grounds for divorce on the basis of unreasonable behaviour?
