Winter Drawers Ever Near

Winter Drawers Ever Near Report 3 Aug 2008 18:13


Got out the car with shopping for one of my elderly peeps, walked up the path, round the corner and collided with a 6ft gorilla (as you do).

He said "Sorry".

I said "No harm done. Fancy a banana".

He said "I've just had lunch, thank you anyway".

I said "Have a nice day".

He waved. Walked over to a car and got in and drove away.

A talking gorilla that can drive. Whatever next?

I wish Julia.

I think he had been at a fancy dress party the night before and probably had too much to drink so couldn't drive home.
