Coffee Break

Ive just remembered Ann & I were at the Drovers Arms Tea Rooms , Builth Wells and I was not being allowed double egg and chips when two elderly men on the adjoining table began a conversation in the quiet local accent of Mid Wales.
“How is the wife?” was the question and the reply which seemed a long time coming “ Oh - not very lively”. Ann nearly choked on her coffee as she tried to suppress a laugh and I in mid- sip felt the coffee shooting up my nose via the back door and begin dribbling over my lip

We think you English people are a hoot as well.

Change the location to Edinburgh and make accents soft Scottish if you prefer I was simply reporting what happened.
