Overheard today...

So I was just standing in a charity shop, browsing through the shelves of books, when I couldn't help overhearing a conversation between the two assistants, both rather ordinary ladies of 'a certain age'.

Lady behind till:

'We were discussing in the pub the other night how men look much better half dressed than naked. Don't like to see it all.'

Embarrassed cough from lady tidying the clothes.

Lady behind till:

'Yes a man in tight jeans, that is what I find sexy. Top off is fine though. But then again I think women should keep some things secret too...'

'Yes, so do I dear.'

Exit one customer, trying hard to stifle laughter.

Ah, but could they work the till?
The ladies of the Oxfam shop down our way always have a long, dithery conflab over how to punch in the amount, open the till, work the Switch machine - in fact everything with a vaguely electronic edge.
Perhaps they're too busy imagining half-dressed men to bother themselves with selling stuff...

Does one of them wear a heather coloured tweed skirt ( sensible length) and a pink lambswool cardigan ( motherofpearl buttons)? If that's the case, then YES,I DO KNOW HER!!
