Love knows no boundaries

Post by Phenopath » Wed Apr 29, 2009 8:40 pm

Dave had consumed a lamb bhoona and five cans of larger and was sleeping fitfully on the couch when the time travel phenomena occurred. He materialised in a shrubbery last Tuesday morning just in time to see Louise walk out of his front door for the last time, wheeling a suitcase towards the waiting taxi.

Louise was startled to see Dave running down the street towards her. Had he repented and come to apologise for his actions? Dave stopped in front of her, out of breath, with a tender look in his eye. He then vomited copiously at her feet.

A! Completely absurd, yet has that "ring of truth" thing going for it. Unexplained time travel for no reason is woefully underused plot device. Good show!

Thanks Tweedy, there can be no higher complement for an Englishman.

I thought "Not bad" was England's top compliment... :?

Indeed, for example...

"How was your daughter's wedding?"

"Not bad"

So subtle, you Brits. Here in America, the top compliment is to jump up and down creaming "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!" and run around in circle flailing your arms until you get dizzy and fall over. "Not bad" is much cooler.
