Lydian Airs Behavioural Science Dept.


Today I'm wondering how many:

Revolutions
Insurrections
Conspiracies
Seductions
Romances
Epiphanies
Gambling debts
Apoplexies
Duelling scars (Dave)
Betrayals
Civil actions
Musical Awakenings (IE)
Welsh Topographical Awarenesses (Dave denies it)
Affirmations (Z)
Arstronomical phenomena (Rog)
Female Control Psychoses (Geoff)
Navigational Errors (Vicus)
Punctuality Problems (Sarah)

have had their origins on the back seat of the bus.

I'm not sure, but I am now singing "didn't we have a loverly time, the day we went to Bangor". . .

. . .as my mentor in these matters (Vicus) would say, I hope this helps

Christopher said...

Thank you, IE. Thanks to you I've now added Musical Awakenings and Welsh Topographical Awareness to the list, but please don't stop singing.

Dave said...

I was never one of the naughty lads who sat at the back of the bus.

Z said...

I was going to say that Dave and I never sat in the sociable seats at the back of the bus, but Dave beat me to it.

Christopher said...

Where did you get your duelling scars/knowledge of the geography of North Wales from, then, Dave?

You mean Dave beat you to making this observation, Z, not that he used to barge past you to get to the unsociable seats first?

Z said...

Yes.

Dave said...

My knowledge of Welsh geography comes from the times I have spent climbing all the Welsh Munroes.

My duelling scar follows an incident involving a lady. Honour prevents me from saying any more.

Christopher said...

So Dave's action was the comment-thread equivalent of opening a door for a lady, Z? Clearly he didn't take a back seat when acquiring his social graces.

Dave, the Rupert of Hentzau of Snowdonia. Was she the one who offered her honour, at which you honoured her offer - but let us not bandy a lady's name about, I understand your lips are sealed.

Rog said...

...and mooning

Christopher said...

You never did, Rog! - but I've added it to the list.

Geoff said...

BACK SEAT DRIVERS!

Vicus Scurra said...

23, according to my calculations.

Christopher said...

Geoff: Oh yes. Turn left here. No, right. No, left. Oh, you've gone past it. Why must you go so fast? Find somewhere to turn round. My first husband would have done it right. No, left. Why are you stopping? Why are you getting out of the car? Why are you locking me in? Why have you left me? No, right...

Vicus: Happy Friday. 23? Yes, I thought so too, but it isn't very convincing, is it?

Which bus?

Christopher said...

Why, Mig, No. 23. (That's to say 'torino fee')

Sarah said...

Out of breath....rush rush...SORRY...late again...ooops they have all left...*skulks off*

Christopher said...

We waited ages for you, Sah, and even kept a place for you on the back seat, but you didn't turn up...
