So I went to the WI party.
The theme was blue.
I didn't go as a Smurf or the character from Brave heart.
I sat in the corner , I'm shy then I was dragged out the corner.
I was placed on the lower table , I suspect a possible hierarchy but there seemed no evidence of this .I helped with several answers to the quiz questions all on a blue theme ; though no one would believe me when I said an answer to a question was the 'Blue Lamp'.
You see there was a reason why as a young child I watched black and white films one because I was plonked in front of it and the other because the television was black and white.
There was a buffet ; there was quiche now I have a problem with quiche I don't like the crust of the pastry. So I left it ,a quizzical look was put my way , now you have to remember that some of these ladies were land girls etc .So the idea of food being left is a little alien the room was filled with " She doesn't like the crust ..."
Gosh wait till they find out I don't like tomatoes ....
And then there was the entertainment but which was Pam Ayres poetry and errrm some blueish jokes .
Some game old birds as you might say ! puts the world of life, liposuction and lollipops in the world of those reality mags to shame. Spirit I like , puts a spring in my old young step.
