Let’s face it

SONY DSC“Face it, Shirley,” Dick told his wife. “She ain’t coming back.”

“She’ll be back.”

“‘Put it by’, she says. ‘I’ll be ten minutes’ but you wait ten, twenty and nothing. In the meantime you could it over and over.”

“Then let’s give her ten minutes and if she’s not back, we’ll put it out again. She’s only gone to get change. I told you we should have brought a bigger float… and some back. You’ve seen Car Booty, Dick.”

“Once and it’s not like this – we won’t get more than a fiver for our best thing.

“That’s because we’ve got tat, Dick.”

“It’s not tat. It’s my mother’s! God rest-”


“You know her. The best of everything…”

“And a fan of car boot sales.”

“She was. And Car Booty, Shirl.”

“Which just goes-”

“She’s back!”

“What? Your mother?”

“No, that woman. Looking very pleased with herself too.”
