“(Arguverge)”/”Pissed darn wiv rane all day”/”bort ticket 2 go and see junior play and talk about poofs in the navy”
Maybe I shouldn’t have laughed out loud when I read this entry 36-years after writing it?
No, not the bit about my parents arguing again (did they ever not argue?) or my poorly-spelled report on the weather.
The other bit. The HUGELY politically-incorrect bit.
I don’t think I have heard the word ‘poof’ – for those not aware, a slang term relating to gay males – since my Mum passed away. Bless her, she still used the word, “correctness” not taught to people of her generation.
Anyway, why would I be buying tickets about such a thing? Was the play about the issue, with a connected talk? “Junior play” suggest not, but who knows what happened in education in the seventies?!
…..regardless, wouldn’t the plural of ‘poof’ be ‘pooves’?
