Drive. Sit Down. Laugh A Bit. Drive Again.

.
Last night, Mr Jelly and I experimented with a new position.
.
After 15 years of marriage, we tried spicing things up.
.
In the end, we decided it felt a bit weird, so we switched back to our usual position of me holding his left one with my right hand.
.
Well, we were in public after all...
.
Yes, you read that right ...
.
... We went out for the evening.
.
Sans child.
.
.
We went to see the comedian Dave Gorman in his stand-up show called
"Sit Down, Pedal, Pedal, Stop and Stand Up."
.
.
.
He's cycling from the UK's most Southernly point, across to the most Westerly and Easterly points and then up to the most Northern Point and performing his stand-up show each evening, (hence the title of the tour).
.
Last night he stopped in Swindon (well, someone has to) and we were in the audience.
.
I can't say too much about the show for fear of giving away spoliers to any future audiences, but I was surprised that he managed to get so much gear into his small back-pack .... some juggling batons, a uni-cycle, a piano, a massive steel elephant, an inflatable ringmaster ... oh wait, sorry, I'm getting mixed up with the time I went to see Take That.
.
He was very funny, very clever and made me laugh loads.
.
I wanted to have my photo taken with him in the foyer, but the queue was too long, and I was too hungry for a burger, so you'll just have to make do with a picture me and Mr Jelly took of us doing our position in public.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!! I read your post out to Mr Swirl and he wasn't expecting the holding hands - dirty minded bugger! We are going to see Dave Gorman too when he goes to Blackburn - can't wait!

I have a crush on Dave Gorman. Mr P calls me a tv hussy. Lucky you for going to see him.

I'm off to check if he's stopping off in Cambridge...

Out for an evening? I'm pushed to remember the last time we did that! Sounds like a good choice for a night out.

you do make me chuckle :)

Tine said...

LOL! You are funny!
We need to do that too, my sweetie and I. Go out sans children :) It just is such a hazzle isn't it?! You have to arrange having family take care of the kids, have to find something you want to do, have to hope against hope that you're not too tired to stand once the date is finally going to happen. Oh....this is why we are at home on the couch watching tv every single evening ;)
