I went onto facebook last night and noticed that a friend I used to work with had had her picture published in the press – on page 4 of the Daily Mirror, a national tabloid, and on the Telegraph online. There was no link, tea had just arrived in the form of an Indian takeaway (I’m not saying we get a lot of these but dependant on who answers the phone, I don’t need to give the address and dependant on who delivers they ask B how I’m doing) so I was under pressure to get it on a plate but I just had to find the photo because knowing Lynette it would be a corker.
I just had to share this, but I did think –
It’s not my photo to share – It’s in a national tabloid, the Daily Mirror page 4, and online at the Telegraph
It’s not of someone you’d know – It’s still cringingly hilarious
Lynette might mind – This is Lynette, she’s probably already ordered a double life size copy to go on the front of her house
Things B said when I stopped laughing enough to answer questions
B: ‘Is she wearing a brightly coloured dress?’
Me: ‘Well nearly.’
B has met her properly, in the flesh as it were, once. On heading upstairs to see the photo –
B: ‘Don’t tell me which one she is let me spot her.’
Me: ‘ Okay then, but I shouldn’t think you’ll have much trouble.’
As Lynette said on facebook – ‘I’ve always wanted to be on Page 3 but I suppose I’ll settle for page 4 now I’m getting on a bit.’ I think it’s page 4 because they wouldn’t fit on page 3.
Parental guidance is advised – don’t say you weren’t warned!
