Ladies, He’s Available

16 Oct

Here I am, trying to call you to make sure you haven’t drunk yourself into a stupor, and there you are, in the headlines, winning the Booker! Congratulations! Now apartments and women should never be a problem again.

~In an email to our latest Booker winner.

P.S. He is not a drunk. I’m just hysterical.

    Manju: Eh? 😕 Nought o’ the sort! He’s perfectly likable!

    gooddaysunshine: I wouldn’t know, hon. I refuse to read it unless the author hands me an autographed copy.

    Nino’s Mum: If I could drop pounds as easily as I drop names, I’d be a skinny minny celeb and everyone would be dropping my name. 😉 I must must must rib him about this. If he ever speaks to me again, that is.

    Oh Joy! Another Indian
    To the Booker is bidden
    He’s done the country proud
    A silver lining to the dark cloud
    Of the recession with which, today, we’re ridden!
