I listened to the "Sounds of the 60s" while catching up with yesterday's blog.
Sleeping Beauty arises and comes downstairs.
He orders an Anti-Snore pillow from Argos.
I asked him "If he bought two?"
"Why two?"He asked.
"One to sleep on, and the other one on top of your face!"
He went to make breakfast after that crack!

I noticed a ex-worker who I call the Anti-Depressant! Washing his car.
To finish our friendship once and for all, he said the following to me while I was doing my first Lollipop job:
"They don't need you here, they have traffic lights.It should be a voluntary position."
