Well, mes amis, today we went over the Humber Bridge to Lincolnshire to collect Roberto's new car. It's not brand new, it's a 1996 Jaguar XK8 and he describes the colour as Eff Off Blue (very good description, actually).
I had to drive our car home and Roberto had told me to take the first turn off after the petrol station at the roundabout. Well, he had gone into the petrol station with his new toy to get some juice and the turn off he had mentioned didn't have any signposts for the Humber Bridge so off I went round the roundabout again until I realised that I was right the first time around, even though there were no signposts. So far so good. I arrive at the Humber Bridge toll booth...I can't reach the man in the booth to give him my money - eeek!! Had to get out of the car and felt like such a lemon. I hadn't seen any sign of Roberto since he stopped off at the petrol station and I was a bit worried that the new (old) car might have broken down. Well, I was just toddling along the A63/M62 and this blue flash of lightening (an eff off blue kind of colour) went whooshing past me and arrived home a good ten minutes before I did.
Roberto is so happy with his new toy. He has been outside since lunchtime polishing it up and admiring it, revving up the engine etc etc...you know, like you boys do?
So, I have revealed his little secret that he didn't want anyone to know about yet. He reads these posts and says "what are you writing that for?" I say to him "Roberto, you don't seriously think that people who read this think that we are real people do you?"
