Happy Halloween to all of you that celebrate this holiday- I hope you all have TONS of fun!! And I'm having a hell of a day too- LOL, It's the last day of the month and our service provider just can't handle the traffic! So most of us in South Africa have named them 'aptly' HELLKOM (*Telkom*)- hahahaLOL- So this is just a little ', chatty-laugh with me ' posting as I can't upload the freebie to 4shared(it crashes all the time) and I can't get blogger to upload any 'LO's or previews'- hahahahaha-
Bunny had a wonderful story about her daughter on her blog ( you know the feeling being in a POSH resturant and you DIE of embarrasment)- * you got to go read it people* ROTFLMAO!!!-
Well it reminded me of myself when I was just 17 ( eek that's years ago-LOL) But I was still 'wet behind' the ears so to speak-
I had been invited by a guy a little older than myself (best friends -friend) to his OFFICIAL NAVAL dinner- UHUM, I was told I had to wear a LONG dress down to my ankles!!- WHAT- this was the 80's for goodness sakes! LOL- we wore MINI's!! hahahaha-
My BEST friend at the time was also going with her boyfriend- but both of us came from family's that weren't well off and battled each month to make ends meet- so there was NO WAYS we could buy a dress- hence the word BORROW!!!- OH gee's, The smartest dress I eventually found was a 3/4 length one ( first mistake-LOL) with tiny buttons going down all the way from the neck to the hem!
We get to the 'DO' and let me tell you- the Queen could have fitted in with these lady's- LOL
And there standing out like pimples on a pigs ass in 3/4 dresses is CLaire and myself! hahahahaha- We got the *LOOKS* and the *Where is your long dress young lady* questions!! hahahahaha and I swear- I was as nervous a hell as it was- and they sure didn't make it easier!!! LOL
We are served a sherry to start (* OH boy- I had never really drunk alcohol at that age either*) and sip it down like cooldrink- Ushered to our seats- We are seated in a U shape- and funny enough I land up facing poor Claire- BUT OH LORDY- as I sit down ALL the little buttons on my dress around my ASS area go POP!!!!(4 of them) ROTFLMAO- I swear- My eye's go huge and I stare at Claire and now get the giggles- and the more looks I get from the 'ladies' and the naval officers ( UHUM including the ADMIRAL!)- the more I want to laugh! So now I'm STUCK in my chair- and they serve MORE Wine!!!! And that's not ALL-
I was told before we went that you do not scoop your peas on your fork- you have to squash them neatly on the back of the fork and then lift them to your mouth!- OK, so what do we get with the main meal- PEAS!! I remember what I was told and try very lady- like to push my peas on my fork- OOOPPPPS- they land up in the old ladies plate NEXT to me!!! PIMP- by now we have been served more wine and I just can't contain the giggles! Claire is red in the face as she try's hard not to laugh! I NOW HAVE TO GET TO THE TOILET- yeah with my ASS sticking out- so take my napkin and use it sort of as a 'backside coverer'- ROTF!!! Never found a pin in there either!! ROTF
Fast forward to dessert- CLAIRE manages to drop all her chocolate sauce from her spoon down the front of her white dress! And of course with her sitting opposite me it was just toooo much- I cracked! I laughed out loud that the whole place stopped and looked at me! * I seem to do that sometimes*- hahahahahaha- cuase you just don't DO that in a 'quiet refined' dinner!! never the less- I never ever heard back from that young man again! LOL- I wonder why??_ hahahahahahahahahahahahah
