There have been a number of complaints* about the possibly sexist nature of the posts so far in the ‘he mumbled::she mumbled‘ section of this blog.
I rashly committed to redressing the issue before publishing another post that might in any way be perceived to poke fun at the less fair sex.
There follows a couple of chance discussions which demonstrated that, on occasion, males of the species may be the superior in terms of clearly communicating their point of view.
In the park:
She (ok, I) said “Would you like a go on the dino, Duncs?”
He said (pointing at the dinosaur bouncer) “kkklip-kkkllop kkkllop-kkklipch-kkklipch-kkklipch-kkkllop”.
“Ok, but I’m pretty sure it’s a dinosaur, jump up.”
(Wee one jumps onto
horsey dino) repeating “kkklip-kkkllop kkkllop-kkklipch-kkklipch-kkklipch-kkkllop” thus proving, by the strength of his conviction and communication skills that the dino was, indeed, a horsey.
The same conversation was then repeated, almost literally ‘word for word’, re the
hippo second horsey bouncer.
