snapshots from a family dinner table

Discussing a client's behaviour around the dinner table on Monday night:

Kate: She just wants it up her hairy vent.
Ally: PARDON! Could you repeat that? I thought you said 'She just wants it up her hairy vent'.
B and Vic: [collapse in explosive laughter]
Kate: I SAID, she just wants it to be her own event.
Ally: Ah, thank you for clarifying that. Would you like some more potatoes?
Kate: That would be marvellous. Thank you.
B and Vic: [simultaneously fall off chairs laughing]

  1. Hilarious! This happens to me all the time. The Consort thinks I'm losing my hearing, but I'm not. People just mumble, is all.

  2. That beats, by some considerable distance, a conversation Mr. KW once had with his mother about sea defences. She thought they were talking about cedar fences. And it's over to you, Mr. Confusion - have yourself a good time, now!

    "Hairy vent" is obviously going to enter the universal consciousness now!
    On the subject of confusion, one Sunday a few years ago Wife's grandmother was having lunch with us. When asked if she wanted peas, she replied that yes, she'd like a nice big wank of peas! I have no idea what she was thinking but she definetly asked for a wank of peas.
