Guru’s Giggles: Pardon?


It’s been misheard words day today in Guru – first Beryl stopped to talk to some elderly ladies and one of them said they liked her perfume. “It’s called Karma and I like it ‘cos it smells like Guru” Beryl said. One of the ladies looked horrified, and said “oh no it doesn’t smell like urine at all”!

The second occasion was when Beryl told Guru’s Kelly that a rep who had been in the day before said of Kelly that she had “a pretty face”, and Kelly misheard and thought the rep had said ‘a fishy face’!!!

About Beryl Maughan Hankin

I'm Beryl, the proprietor and scribe of Guru Boutique. Guru is an independent, fair trade business established almost five decades ago and located in Darlington, UK. I work there with my best friends Tony and Colin. In addition to my other duties, I manage social media for the shop and for myself. Growing up back in the 1940s I never could have imagined such a thing as the internet, let alone social media. However, here I am, well over seventy years later being able to communicate with the world via such things. To quote Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, "What a long strange trip this has been" - and it's not over yet! (Guru Boutique's logo is based on a Mayan harvest deity).
