SMS news July 10, 2006Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
SMSes I received yesterday:
1). (From French gent in Berlin covering World Cup for French radio, on Zizou’s moment of madness) “Incroyable ;-( le suicide d’une icone devant 3 milliards de téléspectateurs” (Unbelievable – won’t translate the punctuation expression – an icon commits suicide in front of 3 billion TV viewers.) (That translation should set you back 1 euro 60, but I’m feeling charitable.)
2). (From ex in Sussex visiting his 94-year-old grandmother recovering from hip-op (not hip-hop) in hospital) “Gran pointed to an utterly decrepit 95-year-old and told us, in a low bellow, “Ethel went to the theatre last night, so she can’t be in as much pain as she makes out.” Actually, it was the operating theatre that poor Ethel had visited. How we laughed…”
I thank you.
