SM: So, how’s the wounded warrior? …. Hosepipe slayer extraordinaire.
Me: This bint no longer needs a splint… I can wriggle my fingers properly now.
I got into a fight with a massively tangled hosepipe; I lost. I tripped on one of its sneaky coils, went flying onto the patio, and landed on my wrist.
A&E X rays confirmed it wasn’t broken but weren’t too sure if I had a hairline fracture or not (they can take days to show up) so I was bandaged & splinted up, plus my left arm was put in a sling.
Another X ray was taken today; no hairline fracture so far has showed up. So I’m now wearing a compression thingy with attitude, but my fingers can wriggle, which means I can now type.
That didn’t stop SM and me getting into an argument/discussion/debate (narh! Argument) about Theresa May and Farage, which, rather surreally, further lead onto an argument/debate about a past pop star (if he was ever even that.)
SM: That’s what they always say.
Me: Oh wow! That’s like my second favourite song by Chris Rea.
SM: Please don’t tell me you were a fan of Chris Rea…
Me: To right I was…. So up yours! Mind you, I haven’t listened to him in years. And admittedly, he was no Adonis looks wise, but with a gravelly voice like he had, who needs looks? I do believe he was once called the thinking woman’s crumpet.
SM: And that’s supposed to be an accolade?
Me: Why not?
And to prove my point, gravelly voice wise, I got SM to bring up my fave Chris Rea song on utube…. Still makes me go weak at the knees after all those years.
Me: Doesn’t that voice make you go weak at the knees?
SM: Not really, no.
Me: You have no soul…
And I promptly fell asleep from the painkillers the doc had given me.
When I awoke, SM played me a song from utube by Chris Rea that he did like.

Me: Hmmm…. It’s a bit smaltsy; I prefer his earlier stuff.
SM: You would!
We are going to have to agree to disagree on this one, as on so many things.
SheWolf, SM has already been an MP!!!!
I was gobsmacked.
Me: You’ve been a Member of Parliament. You never told me.
SM: I never told you I was a Member of Parliament. MP can also mean Military Police. I was with them for two years; part of my training.
Sneaky son of a gun….
