Why? – a reprieve

This is just a little brainfart I had a few years ago.

The question remains valid and I still haven't got an answer.



Why is it that if I wanted to, I can’t upend a couple of chairs in a pub and then crawl on all fours under them shouting “choo choo choo I’m a steam train going through a tunnel choo choo”? Kids do it and no one bats an eyelid.

Why can’t I walk into a restaurant, walk up to a fully occupied table and just stand and stare at the occupants with big hungry eyes? Kids do that frequently and no one seems to notice.

If I see a lovely looking woman the other side of the street, why can’t I just wander over, give her a quick shag and then go on about my business? People don’t seem to mind dogs doing it.

I might add that I have no particular desire to do the first two, but it is the principle that matters.

That third one is a different ballgame, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Life just isn’t fair sometimes.

Why? – a reprieve — 3 Comments

  1. I suspect the older you get, the more likely scenarios 1 and 2 would be accepted with a degree of amusement. Scenario 3 however might require a healthy dose of viagra in latter years so don't bin those junk mails just yet 🙂

    I'll keep an eye on the Southern Star in case you try any experiments in the relative safety of West Cork!

  2. As far as number 3 is concerned you can't do anything like that until your over 85. By that time you can claim senility and get away with it.
