Beryl had everyone crying with laughter in the hospital (including herself), when trying to describe what Col had done to help someone who they had brought in because they had swallowed something that almost choked them. She was describing to the nurse what had occurred, and instead of saying the Heimlich manoever, said that Col had done the Hein Gericke movement on the patient!!! Hein Gericke of course is a brand of motorcycle clothing…
How naive is Beryl. She once asked Col’s poor dad George, who was dressed up as Guru’s Santa at the time, to deliver our Christmas card to our bank (Barlays on High Row). When he bowled in disguised like that they nearly called the police thinking it was a heist!!!
We were listening to a Christmas CD in Guru today, and Mario Lanza was singing Santa Natale, and Col said “shouldn’t that be Santa Claus?”
Beryl just put her reading glasses on – upside down!
Beryl tried to text okidoki to a friend, and her phone changed it to ok idiot!
This predictive text malarkey could land you in deep sh*t…
Lady in Guru asked if we still had a pack of a certain penguin Christmas card. Beryl looked for her, but the ones she found were not the ones she wanted. Then Tony found her a different pack, but they didn’t suit either, but instead of putting it back where he found it, he just dropped it at Beryl’s feet for her to pick up. “Oi, why did you do that?” Beryl asked. He cheekily replied “‘cos I thought you might like to ‘p-p-p-pick up a penguin”!!!
