Overnight at Wazzasplace.


He is a friendly little sucker, my mate Wazza.


Winding down by winding up Roz.


Rather than drive home to Gympie after dropping Vicki and Rex at
the airport

I stopped overnight at Warren’s, always a FUN thing to do, this
time compounded by a visit by his cousin Roz.

Roz is having some fairly extensive renovations done to her
“Queenslander” home and was just dying to tell us (or anyone who
would listen) about them.

The renovations include a totally new kitchen layout, and it was
during the description of this that Warren and I decided to subject
her to one of our "routines”, wherein we would take it in turns to
interject something from a previous comment she had made, like
having the floors sanded and polished or the like, I know from
previous experience how difficult it is to retain your train of thought
under these circumstances, however Roz battled on gamely and
didn’t crack up until when she had finally finished her onslaught
and I innocently asked,
“did you have the kitchen renovated too Roz?”

For those that have visited Wazzasplace you will know that he is
very proud of his Sister Denise who is a talented painter living in
New York, when he did the post about Denise I commented along
the lines of;

"Yes Denise is a talented painter and on her next visit to Australia
I would like her to quote on repainting my living room." To my
surprise when I next visited the site my comment was gone!! so
I reposted it!! again and again.

This routine went on a few times with Warren explaining that
Denise was (a) female and (b) artistic so might be hurt and
offended by my comment.

OK, so you get tired of the same old joke anyway so I dropped it,
last night during conversation;

Warren said, OH DENISE FINALLY GOT ROUND TO READING
MY BLOG,

Wait a minute, says I, you told me that she always read it and
that’s why you deleted my comments,

YEAH, WELL SOMETIMES I LIE,

That’s bloody lovely when your best mate starts lying to you
about why he is censoring your comments,

WELL SHE MIGHT HAVE READ IT FOR ALL YOU KNEW,

Yeah she might have but don’t lose sight of the fact that she is
related to you so would have a hide like a rhinoceros anyway,

YEAH, I MUST ADMIT SHE LAUGHED WHEN I TOLD HER
ABOUT WHAT YOU HAD WRITTEN,

Hang about, you told her, she laughed, and you censored my
comments for nothing?

YEAH, SO WHAT,

So now I’m gonna have to do a blog about you, your Arty Sister
and your censorship policies within Wazzasplace,

WELL OK “CLICK”

(this is an expression we use during phone calls and comes from
Warrens Mums habit late in her life, of ringing him about something
and ending the call with no goodbyes or anything, just the CLICK as
the phone was hung up.)

You really had to be there at the time to get the full idiocy
of this
(and many other) conversations, but it at least gives
a small
glimpse of just how many ways we can find to be
idiotic
(and enjoy it!!)

Wazza's comments are capitalized because he is LOUD,
while
mine are in lowercase because I'm not.

This is totally funny because its so real! I will have to try that "comment on what you previously said" technique sometime, if I can keep my wits long enough for it.

You had to wait until the end of the posting to warn us about Wazza's volume, didn't you? I must tell you my eyes hurt from the volume once you warned me. LMAO

Great posting. I wonder if his sister would come to Kansas and give a quote on redoing the dining room walls? We probably couldn't afford it.

It's great you and Wazza are such great mates, Peter. You must have an absolute ball together. Nothing more fun than two long-time mates having a laugh (or two or three) together.
Have a great weekend.
Take care, Meow

Hi Peter, thanks for the welcome home- yes I am back, but also straight back into work, 6 am starts, until tomorrow, then I'll sure have some catch-up reading to do...

kenju said...

I bet you guys have a really good time together, don't you?!

Lucy said...

You should write a sitcom...that was funny!

wazza said...

Huh, LOUD am I, you rotten #&$#*?&%$
sonofagun.

Hale McKay said...

Lucy said you write a sit-com - no I think not. I think you two should be cast together in a sit-com. Let's see Grumpy Old Men has already been used, hasn't it?

Margaret said...

Good one Peter I think I have heard similiar converstions before.Warrens'@#$%$# needs censoring though.

Wendy said...

Hey Warren
I just read Peter's blog and had a laugh. I can just see and hear you and Peter going head for head and I can just see Roz ploughing on with her rendition of the renovations but mind you she must be excited about it all. You and Peter are real shits when you want to be.......hehehe. just joking. Will you delete this last comment I wonder......hehehehe.

That was a funny except from your blog. I especially liked the comment about you doing a sit com. You have a great sense of humour and a sense of theater and it is a brilliant idea. Actually the blog is the first step towards doing that.
How great too, to have a friend like Peter.
