BBQ And gardeners chat
Well im back a little sooner than i thought i would be
But a good bit of the gardening is now looking tidy at our gite and after all a man cant live on just cornflakes so im home,
And i never sleep well when we’re apart.
Now anyone who is into gardening will tell you “garden” people like nothing better than to talk about gardening and pass on tips about how big their carrot’s are or how they could get hold of their plums and feel them when they think they are ripe enough?
Well if anyone know’s me they’ll tell you my interest in life are my classic bikes, my dogs and my gardening /pride & joy (my car)
& i can hold a good chat about any of them and have a laugh along the way,
In other words hold my own on any of these subjects,
Last night one of our english friends invited me (as i was on my own at the gite) to pop round and meet one of their friends and enjoy a bbq and a few drinks.
Well i arrived at their place (about 1/4 mile from our gite) And thats when i really met my match when it came to older mens chat.
Younger men will talk about sex all night long, but this bloke started off by saying to me,
Hello i think you and i are around the same age!!!!
Oh really i replied,
Yes he said have you had your hips done ???
Before i could reply he went on,
“How about your prosfates”, Do you pass water ok?
He continued, It’s the gland pressing on your tubes
“you know” it slow’s your pee’ing down.
Thank god the hoste came over and said,“Im glad you two have got together”, our friend here
(that was me) has a fantastic garden so I bet he’s not stopped talking about his watering time table and how his dung is!! (just then his wife called out for him to help) So it was “excuse me” and off he went,
Oh i see you have problems with constipation do you!!
I was asked.
errrrrrrr not (I was cut off yet again as my new friend went on about drink lots of water etc) eat prunes, not sprouts or you’ll blowing off for france all night,
run a few miles every day, And you’ll be loose in no time.
I left the bbq, at about 1am feeling a bit like a car thats going for its MOT. “Will i pass or not”.
As i walked away having thanked the hoste for a lovely evening and then i heard a voice shouting to me
“Dont forget drink lots of water and see your doctor ref your waterworks”.
Yes it’s the first BBQ, ive been at and not talked about garden chat “but” i do know more now about water and consipation than i ever did in the past.
I think i’ll stick to good home grown veg and a good days gardening for all my inner workings thank you very much.
But to finsh this blogg, the hoste popped round this morning to tell me how much they enjoyed last night,
and then as he was going he said, "our friend you spent the night talking with!!!
You wouldnt think he’s had three heart attacks would you!!!!
Well you can’t win them all.
