Yo, heave ho, yo heave ho…

What the fuck are you doing, Minerva?

I’m hauling on the bowline

Are you indeed?Why?

Because I am being  a pirate.

I see, and the bowline is what exactly?

It’s a rope what connects the thingy to the doodah on a ships.

Not a thread hanging from my good black cardigan that you have unravelled and which is now half way across the sitting room floor?

I wondered why the doodah wasn’t moving. Belay lads, the thingy’s fucked

My cardigan’s fucked is what you mean.

I stopped you from going out with a thread hanging. You’re welcome.


  1. I get the feeling that some kitty's been listening to too many shanties.

  2. She's getting ready for Sidmouth, Richard, and I haven't the courage to tell her she isn't going.......not yet, anyway.
