Here is a vignette from our domestic idyll this morning.
Mr. Waffle reading the paper: This poor horse had to be put down and we are informed that it has “passed on”. This is getting ridiculous. “Everyone at Godolphin sympathises” apparently.
Me (surprised): Like “Godolphin Horne, Who was Cursed with the Sin of Pride and Became a Boot Black“
Mr. Waffle: I imagine like the Godolphin one of the three original Arabian stallions from which all thoroughbred horses are descended but, who knows, perhaps like the boot black.
Updated to add: Mr Waffle messaged me, “Have read your blog. We sound nauseating.” Oh dear.
