A lovely invitation

January 23, 2009

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.
