Last week I foolishly remarked that Darrell’s manly chest could perhaps “take” a medallion ….
I should have known better and kept my mouth shut because within minutes he was over the road in the paper shop, where Ali has a sort of lucky dip box.
….. and Ali sold him this duo of faux silver necklaces, which will no doubt make his neck turn green, for 50p the two! Darrell said that although it was not the medallion he had in mind, Ali had persuaded him that the said “on trend” neck pieces reflected Darrell’s musical aspirations and dreams of auditioning for X Factor one day! Good Grief!!
However, what I failed to mention at the beginning of this post was that Nigel had accompanied Darrell over to Ali’s, where he too was parted from 50p for a set of false eyelashes, eyeliner and eyeshadow for Tallulah. It seems Ali had convinced him that this was the sort of gift every girl dreams of! Again …… Good Grief!! Ali could sell snow to eskimos!!!
