Another prime cut of Mumuendo courtesy of my dear old ma, in the sense that without my childish interjections it would have passed entirely unnoticed.
When talking to a group of close family about the various solutions she had considered for a particularly troublesome financial problem my mum said:
“I’ve gone through every fucking scenario!”
Me: “Do you mean every fucking scenario or every fucking scenario?”
She look at me with disgust and disappointment, ignored my comment, turned to the room and said:
“I’ve even considered topping myself”
Me “Do you mean topping yourself or topping* yourself?”
* Admittedly, an obscure reference to copping a feel or, perhaps more commonly known as, titting-up. But the majority of the people in the room got the reference. This makes me both slightly proud and slightly ashamed of my family.
