Some overheard and misheard snatches of cafe conversation…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s instruction is to strip naked, close your eyes, cross your fingers, levitate and hover round the room for ten minutes thinking about clouds, pale angels and birds – then put a pair of pants on, proceed to the kitchen and make some nice tea and toast.

‘On the other side, you can’t just wander back Ed…’
‘Whoo!… From the knees! From the knees!’
‘It’s lovely! Her eyes was all snow!’
‘He been charming – a big alpha!’
‘It was all sandwiches and stories until then.’
‘Parson Wilbur?’
‘It got a bit boring, but then there was a colour fly.’
‘It happened personally, we really happy, really more than happy.’
‘Go round in the vector and get a wavy one.’
‘So you got half-love… Jane, the idea is Coptic…’
‘A fireball? I, dear, idea, and then they have to walk around it?’
‘It’s a pound slot ridivule, and a blind ten!’
‘Jones R – a small something?’
‘It was a sovereign doughnut you know, then he called me over.’
‘But the interesting thing – yeah yeah yeah – is speech meat!’
‘She’s called “wonderful” – CBC, ADC, BBC – hell!’
‘Well? What do you think?’
‘Nuthy nuthy, and then you’ve got another new app!’
‘You always go thither like a fellow Dean.’
‘No Stephen, it’s a mop pin!…’
‘A one leg diddly-dee? Drag it down, drag it down!’

    The misheard conversations are so much much better and the what might have been said. Are you on pins and needles waiting for the new Royal baby, teehee?

  2. Dana Doran says:

    I so wish I could levitate. Wishing, apparently, isn’t enough however….or, perhaps, I haven’t wished hard enough! Maybe chanting while wishing?

    • Dave Whatt says:

      Oh, come on Baroness – I’m sure it is within your powers! Start off with just a couple of inches at first, and work you way up – I’m typing this next to a chandelier 20 feet up in my ballroom…

  3. Dana Doran says:

    Swami Dave…can you also charm the snakes? (ho ho!) Speaking of chandeliers….true story, my Albanian daughter-in-law (who refers to Albanian culture as being during “the communism” or as it exists after “the communism…”) just insisted on cleaning the one in the powder room – with crystals. She wasn’t levitating though. Huh. How did she do that?

    • Dave Whatt says:

      Crystals eh?
      Hang on a minute! You have a chandelier in your powder room?!!
      You must be a true Baroness!
      Well, I know some people swear by crystals for all sorts of things, but…
      Did she spray it with crystals dissolved in water? Perhaps soda crystals?…

  4. Dana Doran says:

    Ah, she used Windex and a soft cloth…sure is shiny in there now! I do feel like a Baroness….for the moment….waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak!

  5. Dave Whatt says:

    Ah, I’m familiar with the idiom (idiom, what a great word that is!) but my puzzlement was in was trying to tie in the shoe with the glowing chandelier.
    You were cheered by your sparkling chandelier, but you were waiting for some new unexpected bloody thing to pop up and spoil it all!…
    I do hope nothing like that occurred dear Baroness!…
