Keith and I were talking about our forthcoming holiday yesterday evening. We have decided to spend a day in Paris on our travels through France and I commented that I had spent 10 days there as a student, many moons ago. Whereupon, Keith asked me if I had been up the Eiffel Tower. When I said I remembered going to see it but couldn't remember whether I had been up it or not, he fell about laughing and flatly refused to believe me!
"You MUST remember something like that!" he choked.
"It was 35 years ago," I reasonably pointed out....reasonably.
"Doesn't matter!" he exclaimed, "You don't forget something like that - the prospect of going up in the lift, seeing all those girders...!"
At which moment I felt the need to point out to him that the feminine mind is not necessarily enthralled by the concept of girders - whether on the Eiffel Tower or anywhere else.
I think he's been watching too much "Scrapheap Challenge" myself. It's turned his brain!!
