Impersonating a Ninja

We surprised a woman in the woods. She jumped and said, 'I didn't hear you coming.'
To which I replied, (wait for it) 'I thought you were Father Christmas.'

On reflection it might have made more sense if I'd said the other thing that was in my brain: You never hear a Ninja approaching.

Then again maybe not.

I think I'd have been rather disconcerted by either comment!

So I doubt if she'll be walking in the woods again any time soon, welshcakes!

Very good! It's the sort of thing I would kick myself for afterwards, but then she probably felt stupid too!
