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.'
'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?
