George or Peter?

One of the walls we were painting in Zac's last night is in the Ladies'. Another of the walls in there has a recurring damp problem. I said, 'We need a poster to distract attention from the damp. It would have to be of bikers I suppose. Or George Clooney.'
'Nah,' Diane said. 'Peter Andre.'
'Peter Andre?!!!'
'I'm younger than you.'

I was so stung - there is no other word for it - except maybe bitterly hurt, broken-hearted, traumatised even - by that remark that I couldn't respond. But now I've been up to my elbows in bleach I've finally managed to come up with a retort. 'Age has nothing to do with it; it's a matter of good taste!'
Seriously, which would you prefer to see?

Clooney all the way, but maybe I should ask my daughter. (I think she would opt for George, too.)

Well, I agree with you, Liz, as I have no idea who Peter is. But my fortune cookie today said to compromise, so the question is, is there room for two posters even if there is not a second damp stain to cover?

Neither...Harrison Ford or Pierce Brosnan.

George for sure. Just like a good wine that gets better with age!

Anna said...

I accidentally googled for 'liz' and found, is very funny!! what a way to earn £95/hour!

Well, if I were a gal (or even as a guy) it'd be George, no question. He just looks so suave and experienced and mischievous and generally good company.

George please.

Isn't Peter Andre tacky but? No wonder he married a glamma model who named herself after a Middle Eastern country ...

George Clooney.

Maybe this is an age thing???

Joy Des Jardins said...

George gets my vote....yep.

jay said...

Clooney. If I couldn't have Johnny Depp.

You did see my post about finding Johnny Depp in a loo in Wendover, didn't you? It was a chocolaterie, too!

Liz said...

George is clearly the winner! Thank you all!
