With all the trauma of Nigel’s “absence” Darrell really needed a night out to forget himself.
….. and so it was very fortuitous that after Celebrity Big Brother finished a couple of months ago Darrell got himself a ticket to see Julian Clary in Birmingham …. I felt this could be a little risqué for him and that a lot of the show might go over his head ….. but, who am I to stifle Darrell’s growing cultural development?My trepidation was further justified when he sent me a text message that included a shot of him and his pre theatre comestibles, I have to admit to my heart sinking and my stomach turning ….. a shish kebab kebab? What is he like? I really do need to work on his finesse!
Darrell’s excitement of actually seeing someone, in real life, who he had voted for and thus helped go on to win Celebrity Big Brother was both tangible and palpable …. as I am sure was the residual whaft of Darrell’s kebab to the people sitting around him.
….. Anyway, Darrell was a little disappointed but also a little relieved that Julian didn’t select him to go on stage as a potential “husband”, but it was all very funny and Julian did not disappoint, although there are a few choice phrases that he used that Darrell has asked me to explain at my convenience ….. which I hope he will eventually forget about!
When he got home …. and before he went to bed, Darrell was still on a high and so started a new section in his scrapbook entitled “Famous People What I Have Voted For And Have Seen In Real Life” … he was quite creative as he turned the picture of Julian into a pocket into which he slipped his ticket. I wonder who he will put in next ………??
