What a woman wants


Daughter 2 brought her friend A to dinner yesterday. They were lying on a rug in the garden with the newspapers as I passed the open door.
Daughter 2 was reading out A's horoscope: "The beginning of the week will bring intense thrills".
"Intense thrills?" spluttered A. "INTENSE THRILLS? That's not what I want. I want - what do I want?" Then she finished triumphantly - "Naps on the sofa!"
Ah, they're getting old, those lovely girls.

  1. Oh, I'm with A all the way - what's that saying about living in interesting times? Intense thrills might be too much like that!

  4. I'm at the naps-on-the-sofa stage of life, but ahhh! I remember the intense-thrills stage.....It passed by all too fast!

  5. One could always combine the two, and have an intensely thrilling nap on the sofa...

  6. Naps on the sofa should be compulsory!

  7. With the many ways we can transform a potato these days, it becomes a delicasy...
    Thanks for your comment about my comment.

  8. Is Sunshine's comment a reference to certain couch nappers, known over here as couch potatoes?

  9. I seem to have reached the nap stage. Oh! the bliss!
    Of course a nap with an obliging cat is even better!

  10. it is a difficult choice to make, but perhaps the allure of thrills would be too great. Maybe the best of both could be achieved by a judicious choice of dream topics?
