Turista and Crunt!
January 1, 2012 § 35 Comments
Absolutely best possible New Year’s Eve. None of the usual enforced shenanigans. Just the five of us altogether at Charlotte and her husband’s house, delicious supper, lots of craic and the Dictionary Game, my favourite.
The two new words we learned which we liked best were:-
Turista – diarrhoea suffered by tourists to Mexico. Not South America or India or Sheffield. Just Mexico. I am serious! It’s too good to be true. I shall have to think twice, obviously, before deciding it should be Chihuahua to which I should to plankton-venture.
Crunt – A blow on the head. Which is very fitting, as I dare say some of us may be feeling this morning that this is what we perhaps suffered during the night?
We voiced our resolutions for 2012.
I am not going to be handing out fivers to those of you who can guess what mine was and indeed still is this morning as it has been every morn, noon and night for the past few years, and will probably remain until 2043. That would be quite the quickest and most stupid way in all the world to bankrupt myself entirely.
But Happy, Happy New Year to you all and, at the risk of sounding cornier than all the feet seen to by Dr Scholl, let all our plankton dreams come true!
