Bald kommt Herr Los


This lady's name is Megaera, Meg for short. She is one of the three Eumenides sisters, originally from Thessaly in northern Greece, once described as the 'personification of curses pronounced upon the guilty'.

The gentleman is showing great presence of mind at this time of seasonal tribulation. He is holding fast to that which is good.*

I don't know what he did or said to light Meg's ire. Something trifling, to be sure. I'm afraid I was under the table at the time.


*1 Thessalonians 5,21, Dave?

I wouldn't trifle with her.

We used to have to keep staying Krist Kindt Kommt Bald to practise glottel stops. I wouldn't have minded but it was the Chemistry lesson.

Once you have read the above article, you will be lead to ask about the cream to be applied to the head. Double? Clotted? Whipped? With or without custard? We need to know these things.

I: Yums indeed. Hundreds and thousands of them.

Rog: So you must have done very well in La'in, then?

Dave: I'm very glad to hear from you, because I feared the gentleman in the photo just might have been yourself in a weak moment, and the liquid in his clutched the glass Perrier water. As for your link, this was reported in French news too. The French link baldness with high levels of testosterone, and it's true that Brylcreem (remember?) never really took off in France. I'm sure J.Spadoman will have some words of wisdom to contribute.

Dave: PS - Strike out the second 'the' in the third line of my comment. (Do you take in proof reading?) If it had been you in my photo, readers will be anxious to know who the lady was in reality. But it's not for me to bandy ladies' names about, so people will have to draw their own conclusions.

(Do you take in proof reading?)

I do - and my fee would be a mere trifle. As you may have gathered, I don't like to sponge off my neighbours.

Christopher said...

A very tart observation, Hector. Should I receive my just desserts in finding myself accidentally covered in eaten mess, perhaps even so I could call on you to sponge me off?

According to Wikipedia, Megaera translates as 'the jealous one'. Perhaps the gentleman had been trifling with her confections.

Spadoman said...

I guess this means the French are saying that since I still have a full head of hair my testosterone level might be diminished? But my hair is gray! That changes everything.
I'd love to get my head handled, by such a beautiful woman, in such a way, and I wouldn't care what kind of pie it was. (No double entendre' intended)

Peace

Speaking from from a Laydeez view point, frankly I don't mind if a head has hair on it or not.

Dave I think that's the most feeble excuse I've heard, to get some poor unsuspecting laydee to rub cream in.

Yum I love trifle and have just finished off the last spoon full...

Happy New Year C

Christopher said...

Rather Mig than Meg, then.

Spadoman: In a perfect world everything would be forgiven to men with grey hair.

Sah: HYN to you too. I was hoping you might spare some trifle, but clearly not. No scrapings, no shards of jelly, left in the bowl? Guts.

Spadoman said...

Grey, or gray, is acceptable spelling for the color here in the USA. (I looked it up).

Peace
