Evolution of an idea

Three weeks ago
Prudence: That is my scarf! You nicked it!
Beloved: No it's not, it's mine!

Two weeks ago
Prudence: What a lovely scarf, wherever did you get it?
Beloved: I stole it from my wife.

Yesterday
Prudence: I see you really like that scarf...
Beloved: Yes, my wife lends it to me, she has excellent taste.

A new perspective at breakfast time

Apropos of absolutely nothing, Beloved said this morning:

"I'm not just a husband, I'm a whole concept."

And there was not a thing Prudence could say to dispute that.

Quote of the day II

Prudence's office is populated with sick people. Some of them are taking advantage of their illness.

Overheard two minutes ago:

"It was a cough, not a snigger."

Note careful use of the word snigger, which Prudence believes to be an admission of the exact opposite!

Quote of the day

Overheard in the HR Officer's office:

"Come in and sit down.

"I won't lick you."

Followed by a frenzied attack of coughing.

Prudence hurried away, thankful the invitation hadn't been directed her way.
