Well, what a get-up!

Julie was talking to one of her colleagues the other day. It was a pretty muggy and nothing was going right. This colleague said to Julie the following classic line; "My get up and go has got up and gone." My wife was duly sympathetic, but of course had to go that extra yard or three...


Obviously, the various parts of Julie's psyche have rather full lives themselves. Oh, and talking of which, this reminds me of something Julie has a little trouble with. It's just a little verbal slip, that's all, but she does find it hard to get the correct pronunciation for some words, despite many attempts to correct it. One good example is 'gesundheit'. For some reason, this keeps coming out as 'Good and tight', which is incongruous for the circumstances, to say the least.
However, it's when referring to her own... unique psyche that we have most fun. Especially when she refers to an alternative personality as an 'alto ego'. Not bad; if she lines her personalities up just right, she could sing Bohemian Rhapsody, complete with harmonies, all by herself.

Ah well, that's us for this week - see you next week and don't forget to put your name in for the free prize draw! After all - the closing date is tomorrow evening!
