All we need to do is make sure we keep talking

Some people have wondered what it's like to have a conversation with Julie. To have all the wild and wonderful comments zooming off at so many tangents it's usually nigh-on impossible to discern where the original line of though was going. To suddenly find yourself utterly incapable of speech. Of thought, even.
With that in mind, we are going to share with you a recent Facebook conversation we had. Before you read it, however, I want to say a couple of things.
1) In case you were wondering about the start of this exchange, my father's name IS Eric, and we're alluding to a former Monty Python member and a much loved variety hall and TV comedian, much famed for his antics with another fellow named Ernie Wise.
2) You asked for it. Just remember that.

I warned you.
By the way, the spaghetti/interchangeable comment above was referring to this particular part of Birmingham's road system, Spaghetti Junction.
Also, for people unfamiliar with Morecambe & Wise, allow me to point you in the direction of this classic clip from their show, parodying Gene Kelly...

Here's another Facebook Gem for you. As an added bonus. Wrap yer heads around this.

All this just goes to prove the words of Pink Floyd (as uttered by Stephen Hawking).
"For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals.
Then something happened that unleashed the power of our imagination.
We learned to talk."
After that, we were really screwed...

See you next time!
