Do not exceed the dose

Having just returned from a fortnight in St Lucia with my wife during our wedding anniversary, I've had a mini epiphany.

At the hotel, the guests I engaged with commented on how refreshingly positive, crazy, funny I was and this was echoed by the staff at the hotel. I was asked a few separate times if I did comedy on the stage! Each time my wife rolls her eyes!

On the way through the airport I started joking around with one of the checkin staff at St Lucia airport - she asked my wife if I am always like this and my wife gave a weary nod lol. The member of staff said how refreshing it is to see and that i had brightened up her day.

I have endless patience apparently, which is no bad thing 😇


actually id find you totally annoying, so much so, id pick something heavy up and throw at you


It's lucky my ninja reflexes have remained intact so I would avoid it!
