As may have become apparent, I remain worryingly childish and my brain often strays into the realm of thinly veiled filth (a constitutional monarchy these days, I believe). My internal monologue (only sometimes unleashed onto the indifferent public) is at times better suited to a Carry On film than to providing an appropriate foundation for a go-getting captain (or at least subaltern) of industry.
A recent 24 hour period was particularly rich in occasions when the world offered me a good laugh at the existence-challenged homunculus that diarises my life. Firstly, I learnt that the church of St John-sub-Castro in Lewes is to be redeveloped. One of the plans includes dividing the tower into apartments – an idea I loved, if only for potential to have flats in the belfry!
However, it was over the breakfast table (not mine, I hasten to add) that I rather lost it. I discovered that my host had taken to playing a pink flute – not only that, but it could boast open hole, skin pads. I had the opportunity, but resisted, of giving it a blow myself – an activity that could have given new meaning to the phrase “wood wind”. Lest your minds should have made a bee-line for the gutter (as mine clearly did), here is a photograph of the aforementioned pink flute:
This same table – as well as the stuff of fast-breaking – also played host to multiple Arduinos and associated midi-based circuitry and later some “tan-through” keks courtesy of Kiniki. These final items did seem transparent to a rather wider range of wavelengths of light, including the visible, to me but I was assured this was not so (and was luckily spared a demonstration of either their opacity or effectivess).
A year or two back, this same table also offered suggestive fun in biscuit form. I’ve waited for my chance and, finally, the pink flute has offered an opportunity to thrust my Dorset Knob into the face of the public (in photographic form). Hooray!
Might I propose that this table (and its curators) be saved for the nation as a gift to double-entendre based comedy writers everywhere!
