Roger left for work on Friday morning. Friday was payday, so instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire pay packet.
Finally, Roger appeared at home on Sunday night, and obviously he was confronted by his angry wife, Martha who castigated Roger for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions. Finally, Martha stopped the nagging and said to Roger, ‘How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?”
Roger replied grimly, ‘That would be fine with me”
Monday went by and he didn’t see his Martha. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.
By the Thursday, the swelling had gone down just enough so that Roger he could see Martha a little out of the corner of his left eye
I was born in Southsea, Portsmouth after the 2nd World War had ended and I lived for most of my childhood in Portchester; Trincomalee, Ceylon [Sri Lanka]; and attended the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, Suffolk. Sport was one of the few things that genuinely excited and interested me and I played and watched avidly.
I trained to be a teacher at Bulmershe College of Education, Reading and later at Sussex University and have taught in Paulsgrove; Leigh Park; Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico; North East Surrey and Gosport. Humour has always been an essential aspect of my teaching and attitude to life in general.
I am extremely happily married to Steve and have been since 1970 and we have two grown up children of whom we are very proud. Will’s favourite holiday destination is Les Costes, a Holiday Cottage in Pardaillan, Dordogne, France.
I am now retired and am enjoying working with my good friend and ex-teaching colleague, Guy, on our humour website.
I was born in Cowbridge, which is in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales. My formative years were spent at the local grammar school followed by Cardiff University.
For 4 years I flirted with research into growing better plants. What I like most about that job was part time teaching of undergraduates so I moved into mainstream education and to the teaching front line. It was at my first school at Wakeford, in Hampshire that I met Will.
