Age Difference…

I’m going to my caravan neighbour Sheila’s eightieth birthday barbecue on Saturday.  I’ve been to one or two of these Welsh birthday bashes down there before, so I know what to expect.  The finale, around midnight, will be massed singing in which I will timorously join.  If I can still find my vocal chords, that is.

Anyway, I needed to get her a card, so on a racing dash round Waitrose this morning I grabbed this from the ‘age-related’ section, without really looking at it.

I’m tempted to give it to her anyway, to see if she notices, or feels complimented.  Probably better not, what do you think?


  1. Just tippex out the N & it'll read fine.

  2. I think you've got away with it.

  3. Eighteeth? Where was you brung up, bro?

    Z, yes, I did, by not delivering it. I realised that she wouldn't be opening cards on the spot, so the joke wouldn't work. I got a substitute card at Kilgetty Co-op.
