Quote from: word_on_a_wing on October 17, 2020, 09:44:18Whoops sorry about that. I had searched for the it on YouTube because I'm not a big fan of Facebook and didn't want to post a link from there. Alas I couldn't find it anywhere else, so that's why I posted that one. Glad you could see it
Quote from: undefinedAlas .... I find this an interesting word, and I wonder where it comes from. My mind creates the following story:Scotland a few centuries ago... person A is waiting for a (young male) person B. Grumbles to themselves "where is that laddie", someone walks in and person A feels optimistic, then realises "oh, A Lass" (I.e. it was a girl, not a laddie"). ...and that is surely the origins of the word Alas?! 🙃
Quote"Spice up a long-term relationship - by telling each other your most secret sexual dreams," sex experts say. Absolutely never do this. It is terrible advice. If you've got by for 15 years without telling each other about your thing for Martina Navratilova, don't disrupt your delicate sexual ecosystem by suddenly throwing it into the mix on your birthday, when you're pissed, in your knickers, holding a tennis racket. It'll ruin Wimbledon for ever, for a start - and it tends to bring awful consequences. Unless you happen to be married to one of Britain's great character actors - Paddy Considine, say, or Toby Jones - suggesting role-play is likely to be an agony you will never forget. Your average 45-year-old husband's ability to convincingly play - without rehearsal or script - a hot pirate or sexually-curious-yet-repressed Victorian doctor is likely to be quite low.The role you will end up playing, after half an hour of self-conscious Scottish accents and hat-wearing, is that of a frustrated Hollywood director, saying, "Let me tell you a bit about Dr Sexington's backstory. I think it would help give you more range", while your husband sadly detumesces and wishes he was in Equity, so he could make a complaint about hostile working conditions.
Quote from: undefinedGETTING blind drunk with a mate on a freezing cold park bench is now the best thing to do at the weekend thanks to lockdown.
