A lovely invitation

Overheard this morning in a Dublin newsagent’s shop, a conversation between two elderly ladies.

Lady 1: ‘He’s such a lovely man, so athletic.’
Lady 2: ‘And so well spoken. He’s lovely’.
Lady 1: ‘And his lovely wife and two daughters, they looked so proud.’
Lady 2: ‘Yes, with all the world watching. They seem such a lovely family.’
Lady 1: ‘Pity about the oath, but who’d blame him, such pressures.’
Lady 2: ‘By the way, the committee have decided to invite him to open the new crafts shop.’
Lady 1: ‘Oh, that’s grand – it will make a lovely change for him.’

Remember, you heard it here first.

    Who needs to listen to the news? All you need to do is visit your elders and you’ll get all the juicy gossip the way it’s supposed to be told 🙂

    All you need to do is listen to the spokespeople for Irish banks and do exactly the opposite.
