Last night, I went to the pub with a friend, who we will call Doris*. We drank and then caught up with each other's lifes, me explaining about my recent appearance on Radio Nottingham.
"Did I ever tell you about my radio stint?" Doris asked.
"No" I replied
"Mmm, well I was on the radio quite a bit" she explained and paused for effect.
I willed her to continue....
"A brother of one of my friend's runs a radio show and was struggling to get people to phone in" she began to laugh...
"So I had to pretend to be a caller on a show, where the discussion was about, dressing up to please your partner".
My mouth fell open at this point.
"I had to say that I dressed up in my Mother's Lollipop Lady's outfit to turn my partner on, but that it hadn't worked" Doris explained nonchalantly, as if it was an everyday occurrence.
We swiftly changed the conversation after that.
