My main 'point-in-case' related to my taking Naughty George on his daily drag. We were walking in the fields adjacent to my village (actually, to be factually correct, Naughty George wasn't walking, he was being chased by a big white dobbin called Sabre whom he had pissed off with his woofing), when the heavens opened and the rain came down big time. Yep, just as I was at the midpoint of my walk. Bloody arse.
The most annoying thing about the scenario was that I was starved of a legitimate choice: I could either walk back the way I came and get soaked; or continue until the end of the walk and still get soaked. So I plodded miserably onwards with rain dripping from the end of my nose and my feet squelching in their boots. And, as always happens, whilst Iwas heading back through the village, one of my friends drove past, waving, honking their horn and cheerily shouting, "you look wet!"
However, you will be pleased to hear that sorry saga did in fact spawn an interesting fact. When I got home, I took off my sodden and dishevelled raincoat and decided to try and revive it by washing it. I looked at the label and it said 'dry clean only'. What the blazes is that all about then?
Anyway, enough of me banging on about the crap British weather (bring back snow and sun). I have got two cool things to show you. I found them on two of my favourite blogs, and decided that I quite simply had to share them with you dahlink (yes, I am like Mother Theresa except with not as many wrinkles, and not as dead).
The first cool thing was a video that I nicked from Jim's blog, called Ocean Breezes. It's a video of a 3-year-old child called Jonathan conducting the 4th movement of Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Totally 'gob-your-coffe-out' amazing.
Vid.No.1. Is this a child prodigy or what?
And if that wasn't enough, I spotted another cool feature whilst I was hanging out at Bodacious Boomer's blog. It was called 'The worlds largest swimming pool'. Just take a look at it ..... it is abso-bloody-lutely amazing!
Pic.No.2. The worlds largest swimming pool (click for more pics). In case you were wondering, it is in Chile which is not a communist country
So next time you are at work, and the resident fitness freak says that they feel great after doing a couple of laps of the pool at 6am ......... make sure you point out the worlds largest pool and say, "I wanna see you do a couple those couple of laps of that bastard!" And then buy yourself a McDonalds Big Mac to celebrate your witty retort.
