Sincere Greetings as we grind towards another weekend on the exciting Roller Coaster of Life with PMR / GCA.
It’s always a privilege to have my posts accepted on the PMRGCA HU forum - and equally gratifying so to get such kind, intelligent and helpful responses from PMRGCA survivors from all around the world, which have helped me immensely along the way.
As a result, I thought I'd take this opportunity to share some with you. Here’s a selection:
(n.b. Forum user names and avatars have been changed to protect the innocent. Any resemblance to individuals who are living, deceased, or in any state in between, is entirely, er, ‘accidental’. My lawyer told me to blame the steroids just in case…).
‘Just read your Post. All I can say is GET A LIFE… :-/’
‘Eeeh by goom lad, thee’s coom oop with a crackin piece aboot them Stair Rods!’
‘Wonderfully insightful - Brilliant!!! P.s. can you lend me a few quid until next week? PM me? Hugs and kisses xxx ;-)’
‘Nice tie (in your profile photo), can I borrow it for a job interview?’
‘This barking nonsense should be in the Terrier Breeders’ Gazette!’
‘Stop making my wife laugh or I’ll come and sort you out good and proper :<’
‘Lovely, already! Do you do Bar Mitzvas too?’
‘I think this is funny, but I’m not sure…’
‘Can’t you get a proper job?’
‘What a Silly Billy..’
‘MEGA, LUSH, THAT's TMI! FYI I’M LIKE ROFL, LOL!!!!’
‘Is that your Motor Vehicle parked over there, sir? I notice it’s not taxed…’
‘Sooh beautiful Fake Humour from a sooh cool Brit Guy…!’
‘The last one went down a treat! Sorry, I haven’t read any of your posts yet’
‘Thanks MB, another one to keep my shredder busy!’
‘I literally p****d myself laughing. But then, I often do.. :-('
‘Haven’t you got a home to go to? - or maybe you’re in one already..?’
‘You’re a Leg.. end….’
‘How about a quick snog - what do you say?! xxx’
‘Could you come and make a guest appearance at our next car boot sale? We usually get a large crowd of about a dozen people unless it’s raining, then it gets cancelled - as usual’
‘One is mildly amused’
‘Mmm…have you taken too many of THOSE tablets again?’
‘Were you the bloke in that TV documentary about mental health problems?’
‘Salut Mon Brave. Vive la plume de ma tante, Nescafe alors!’
‘Sorry, my pussies have just been sick - I’ll get back to you later’
‘Nice one Boyo, isn’t it? There’s lovely now, look you. Cwtches from Cardiff!’
‘You made my day.. go downhill..’
‘May God Bless You My Child’
‘I just read your posts. PM me and I’ll give you a confidential helpline number…’
‘OHH, you ARE awful - but I LIKE you..!!’
‘..Just send me the tiny purple ones in plain packaging and DON’T tell hubby. OMG, sorry, wrong thread! - IGNORE THIS!!!’
(..machine translated from Swedish..) ‘Glad Morgen, Benjamin Mark! Do you drive a white Volvo? Did I saw you in Stockholm next week?! My hovercraft is full of eels!’
‘Dobriy Dyen, Markovitch. Tak, dos ya vlotti meaning: Brrreeteesh Humour? Paka!'
‘We only have room in the basement. Interested..?’
‘That’s all very well, but Brexit means Brexit’
‘Muchly ticklyfold and giggleful the muscelodes - Deep Joy!’
Well, You Lot - there you have it, for better or worse (probably worse). As always, I disclaim all responsibility for any co-lateral damage caused by my posts. If you find yourself reading this Silliness at Daft-O-Clock in the morning, the antidote is probably a strong tranquiliser. If you AND your OH / partner (or whoever) are reading this together, you probably both need a good talking-to by a trained Relationship Counsellor. If you've handed yourself over to the Authorities and pleaded Insanity as a result of any or all of the above, don't blame me. As the old saying goes: 'I only work here'.
Happy Weekend all - and try to keep smiling on the PMRGCA (and also Life's?) Journey
