MrsM confesses

I am mightily ashamed because:

I am definitely too old
for toilet humour.

I am supposed to be too young
to be excited by a mahogany loo seat.

There was a queue of literary ladies
waiting very patiently
while I took a photograph
of the ceramic chain pull.

It is all quite unforgivable.


Please come back tomorrow,
we will put this behind us
and discuss in an age-appropriate way
how I met Mr & Mrs Cornflower
at the Bloomsbury lit-fest that was
the Slightly Foxed Readers' Day.


  1. Strangely, this does not surprise me.

  2. Oh....I am so giggling! : ))

  3. Tut, tut Mrs M - control yourself.

  4. It was so lovely to meet you, and here's to next year's event!

  5. Is that is the comparative what is the superlative ? Just asking

  6. No one is ever too old for toilet humour. I loved Despicable Me 2 for all the completely childish humour. My daughter only has to say "bottom" like a Minion to have me giggling like a 5 year old......

  7. I worked with a girl with the surname Crapper. And yes she was related to the great man himself.

  8. My dad used to sing a lovely song about it: "A gentleman dapper came out of the crapper and these are the words that he said..."

  9. There is no age limit for toilet humour. Thank you for taking the photographs, the acoutréments are beautiful.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
