Abridged Excerpt from ‘The Curious Curiosity’:
“This is the most excitement since Mr Mc Loosely was a guest at our WI.”
“Goodness really? What on earth was his talk about?” Asked Claire.
“He gave us a talk about surviving in the wild. It was all a bit boring until he was telling us how to forage for food, when Marjorie Phipps who quite frankly Claire could survive on her own excess body fat for at least three months….”
“That’s a bit harsh Aunty Pat.”
“But true Claire. Anyway on the pretext of going to the toilet she nose-dived into the tuna vol-au-vents and cut rounds. Irene Ingles, madam chairperson was furious and started to get up to go and stop her. The other ladies who hadn’t really been listening to Mr Mc Loosely, started to rise up out of their seats, thinking the talk was over and not wanting to miss the food.
Mr Mc Loosely realised he was losing his audience, picked up two sticks and loudly banged them together shouting ‘LET’S MAKE FIRE!’
The shout woke Wendy who was asleep in the front row, she launched her bottle of elderflower water all over Mr Mc Loosely whose linen trousers went completely transparent. This stopped the stampede to the buffet in its tracks as we all realised Mr Mc Loosely went commando. It was the most exciting talk we’ve ever had at the WI. Throw your blue light on the roof love and I’ll put me foot down.”
“I haven’t got a blue light Aunty Pat.”
“Starsky and Hutch always had a blue light! The Sweeney always had a blue light! You’re the police you must have a blue light !”
I would love you to read all about me and my friends. Go on treat yourself to a scrummy, yummy book.
