In which I nearly spit out gin.

I'm not often lost for words. I know, you're shocked at that revelation aren't you? What can I say?, even I, Queen of the smart arse remark, can, on occassion, be stumped for the correct response.

Anyhoo, I was having a conversation with someone about their upcoming date. This was a first date with a man they had met through t'internets. I wasn't shocked at that. I was, however, surprised that t'internet site was based on rich men taking women out and paying for everything. Well, London has it all, doesn't it?

So, a site where rich men take women out for drinks and dinner and expect nothing in return, just the pleasure of your sparkling chit chat and company.

I nearly spat out my gin and tonic, my £5.35 gin and tonic!!!!!!! (and it wasn't even Bombay Sapphire, just Gordon's)

Aye right. (to be heard in as Glaswegian accent as you can manage)

Aye Right (the only double positive in the English language that makes a negative)

Oooh, don't like internet stuff like that, my ex husband (the second one) had too much fun with ladies on the internet, if you know what I mean. Oh yes and the phone, not sure if he ever did the deed physically, but knowing him when he was 'working back late at night' he was probably telling the truth, just different work.

Bloody hell over 5 pound for a G & T, shite thats expensive, although I bought two glasses of wine which were just over a quarter full and s small bag of chips for $18 or for you just over 10 pound, I was pissed off, but now realise compared to yours mine was cheap.

*snort* Yeah, right (as we say over here). Sounds fishy to me.

Kelloggsville said...

Lesley - I love aye right, 2 words that express so much

Sandi - I was in London where I think they just make prices up! your 2nd ex sounds a real charmer

Gigi - ooh it works cross pond as well, great !

S - I think HWMBO might be a bit cross but fair play, register we shall and I can indeed confirm I am a real lady - apologies to Grandma in Cyprus (again! xx)

Mud - naked conversation would be def the order of the day, methinks

Troy said...

I would guess they are looking for a conversation that merely comprises enthusiastic agreement (ie. "Yes!, Yes! Oh Yes!").

auntiegwen said...

Troy - thank you so much, that will help both myself and Kellogsville when we go on our double date, we shall remember to say the yes oh yes

I've never had much doubt about my orientation. My beard is the rugged, outdoor, pints of real ale sort. I've never had a penchant for Judy Garland (although there was something about her daughter in 'Cabaret'). My socks are more feet than effete. But Bombay Sapphire in exchange for conversation? What was the address of that website?

auntiegwen said...

BT - I am surely going to Hell now, if I am encouraging all you good people to sign up to Sugardaddies

Lottie said...

Wow they must be real gents taking out gorgeous young women and not expecting to get their leg over...

auntiegwen said...

Libs - someone I met through work and she was a very thin and beautifully dressed blonde, my age ish though

Lottie - real gents indeed, she told me one of them emailed her and uttered the most romantic words you could ever wish to here..."cut to the chase, what size are your tits?" laaverly, needless to say he never got to find out

Taz said...

This site is surely some work of fantasy no?

auntiegwen said...

Taz - nope definitely real x
