No Butts

My husband has a different opinion of the monarchy than I do, but he agreed that the recent spontaneous visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to fire-ravaged Slave Lake in northern Alberta was a touching gesture.

"I agree," I said. "It was their own idea, too."

"And they're having a very successful tour of Canada, but..." Ron continued.

I interrupted him. "Never mind the buts. You said something very nice; quit while you're ahead."

"That's not something I ever thought I'd hear you say," Ron replied.

"What?" I was puzzled. "Quit while you're ahead?"

"No," he explained. "Never mind the butts!"

Oops! Silly me!

Very cute. Do you think Kate spanks William on the butt?

@joeyred: Where else would he spank her?

@Hermione: And what about the "ifs and ands"?

It creeps into every conversation, doesn't it?

Hermione said...

Joey - Yes, I'm sure she does. And probably vice versa.

Karl - They're coming up soon in another couple of posts.

Meow - It seems that way, doesn't it? We both have one-track minds.

I am sure Hermione, you were the 'butt' of his joke. Because soon thereafter you made your remark, your 'butt', paid for it, by being reddened, most lovingly.

Happy spankings

Hahaha, Hermione, fancy you saying that!!!

Our Wills is cute. His mum, Diana, was a gentle, loving, thoughtful, considerate, kind lady who CARED about people. ALL people. And she brought him up the same way, till she was "accidentally" killed. I am really glad he takes after his mum. And he has made a good choice of wife; Kate is lovely too. xxx

LOL - cute. And the royal family will probably have a royal spanker just for that purpose LOL

Hermione said...

Six - Sounds like a fitting 'end'.

A belated happy birthday to you, my friend!

Red - I think we both felt it stop turning:)

Daisy - Wills looks so much like his mum, and Kate was the right choice.

Kiwi - I'm sure hey have a modern-day whipping boy (or girl).
