Who Knows the Secret . . .




Well, loads of other bloggers seem to have black boxes . . . I thought I'd get my own . . .

The secret? She'd like us to believe he's recovered from his vasectomy and is raring for action. But in reality he's probably just paid the lease on her new flat. Women who like those kind of chocolates generally prefer money to sex.

Ah . . . It was an eighties thing, we buy our own chocolates now . . .

BEAST said...

Buying ones own chocolate is tantamount to kerb crawling in my book . I am sure Mrs P will concur . I bet she NEVER buys her own

scarlet-blue said...

You are probably quite correct Beast. I can't see Mrs P ever needing to buy her own chocolates. As I've said before, I don't really have a sweet tooth . . . though I may indulge myself with a tube of Smarties every now and then . . .

Mrs Pouncer said...

Buy my own? Never; or at least, not for many years.
A close friend and I are planning to spend an entire weekend closeted in an hotel room next month. We envisage serried ranks of empty bottles, Room Service trays piled hither and thither and boxes of chocolates, the cellophane torn asunder, the unpopular centres trodden into the carpet, and no shame about going to the second layer just because you don't like what's left on the top.

Goodness Mrs P, it sounds like an orgy . . . where is this glorious festival to be held and are you making a video?

Good heavens, Scarlet, that's hardly an orgy. And no, there will be no record of the event. That sort of vulgarity is better left to proles or Americans. Discretion, caution, circumspection, self-preservation is the British way, I think you'll find.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Thank you for the happy memories Miss Scarlet - we like it dark and bitter in this neck of the woods.

I suspect that eating the chocolates might smudge the 3 layers of lip enhancements necessary to achieve the colour coordinated (ith rose) visual effects.

layers = foundation, not-slip base, glitzy top-coat


Maybe she could demonstrate her oral skills prior to recieving the chocolates, like the lady in the Boddingtons adverts...

scarlet-blue said...

Kate: I've viewed a few old ads over the last couple of days. They're wonderful, like segments from a movie. And yes the memories.

Wendy: Yes, the memories. I used to wear my lipstick like that. You always knew where I'd been. Sometimes it was like a bloodbath.

Mrs P: I think the British way is to giggle a lot, fall over, lose knickers and deny everything.

I used to love those ads, along with the Gold Blend ones but these days I associate with a vegan so I have been converted to Green & Black's dark chocolate with ginger pieces which is quite delicious.

scarlet-blue said...

Ms Cake: Did you know that in 1987 30 million people tuned in to watch the Gold Blend couple finally have a snog?

I think it was probably a successful ad campaign then!

BEAST said...

Its Ok Mrs P we dont need a video of your chocolate fuelled orgy , we will be able to hear your knicker elastic twanging from here :-)

Glamourpuss said...

That ad really got on my nascent feminist tits back in the day. Now, I just marvel at her lipstick application - flawless.

Puss

scarlet-blue said...

Beast: Mrs P will be after you!

Puss: Honest truth, I used to spend over 15 mins on just my lipstick before going out. I have wonky lips.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Dear Beast, there will be no twanging. Any straps, ribbons or other restraints will be bitten through, cleanly and noiselessly.

My boyfriend in the 80's needed eyeliner, lip-gloss and matching diamante earings before he could leave the house. I liked to think of it as performance art.

Luckily I escaped the make-up sessions induction and aspiration, still do.

john prescott said...

No deep fried mars bars then?

BTW, I like that sneery shopgirlie in the nice n' easy ad.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Mr Prescott, are you a friend of Dr Maroon?

scarlet-blue said...

Wendy: You were lucky Wendy, most of us dressed ourselves up as clowns. I still have the photographs and so do a few American tourists.

Hello Mr Prescott, how about a custard cream?

So who's been nibbling in your undergarments, Mrs P?

I always enjoy a black box. The insides are so juicy!!

scarlet-blue said...

Now, now Mr Horny, you calm yourself down . . . you've been playing with your Dyson again, haven't you?

I thought we agreed to keep that secret! x
