….. swiftly followed by an equally fluxed Nigel I had an uncanny and spooky feeling of a Derek Acorah type nature that I would immediately regret enquiring what they had been/were up to ….
They had been out squandering their pocket money on “things of a boy type humour” ….. to wit three pieces of extra sour camel balls chewing gum that they had found in their sweet shop of choice in town ….. costing 10p each! I just despair! It’s just too, too unsavoury for me, and I certainly wasn’t going to encourage them!
Naturally Nigel, who I don’t actually believe has taste buds, volunteered to try them out first …
…. biting into it first to check out it’s contents ….. which I always regard a very common thing to do!
Let’s just say that his resulting expression said it all ……. and served him right …. they were extra sour!
