The curse of the Purse.

As often happens, a mad thought popped into my head. Thinking about my Mom and her purse?
No one went near my Moms purse and I’m sure my Dad was even scared to walk near it sometimes.
(He used to eye it on the table and rush off) … it was like the curse of Moms purse.
I also remember her telling me to always put something by for a rainy day. …..“Put it somewhere no one else could find it and no one knew about.” She said.
“And always keep your purse private”.
I thought that this must have come from a life experience in her past? But I really don’t know, because I never asked. “Although now, I think it may just be a woman thing”
But I do have a rainy day fund, and I always have done!     (I don’t have a purse though)
Do you remember those old comedy programs like Alf Garnet?
The wife (I forgot her name)  always had her purse robbed by Alf, because he wanted a drink at the pub.
Was that based on real life you reckon? I think it may have been.
I could never imagine the husband peeking in his Wife’s purse now … could you?

“Well there gus me pocket money I was placing on the hosses,
I’ve got to wait till next wik naa before I cut me losses.
I dow know why he does it though, it aye as if he’s broke?
It’s the mystery of a woman’s puss that aggravates the bloke.

He cor help himself he has to peek for a lousy bob or two
He’ll tek it without a single thought, just to buy a pint or two.

I’m thinking in the future, there as to be a change
where woman wear the pants and the bloke’s cook at the range.
Ooh just the thought of ‘im’ at the sink, it dow arf mek me loff
But I feel a change is coming girls, oh yeah yo con scoff.

There is a reason for our misery, its to make our young uns strong
For every generation will know that this is wrong.

Any road, I don’t know why, depressed all cus of him?
I’d have lost it all just the same, cus I never ever win.”


WARNING  .. Do not read the next bit if you have a nervous disposition.

Did you read this rhyme and think out loud; “You know that aint arf bad”
Did you click on the ‘like it’ though?  …Oh boy I wish you had!
I’m getting self conscious now cause No one likes my stuff,
I try real hard, I really do! but it seems it’s not enough.

Now look what you have done to me, I’m feeling all morose
I’m not about to scarp this blog but I’m getting very close
Have I made you feel guilty yet? are you thinking; “Oh what a shame”,
“this girl is sad, now I feel bad, because yes I am to blame”!

Hold up, I jest! Awwww dow look sad, I’m just taking the Mike
but all this could be avoided if you’d only hit that like!

Cheeky cow aye I?  🙂
