Mr TC didn't miss a beat. "Wrestling."
I. Lost. It. Almost fell of the couch with laughter. Tiger was pissed off. "WHAT? What's so FUNNY?"
Telling that story to my sister Tee recently, I got reminded (yet again) that we are so very related.
Tee: "Oh mate ... I hear you. Walking around Seaworld a few months ago, we came to the meercat enclosure. They were all f*cking, so I started laughing and told ...."
Me: "Wait - what? They were all f*cking? What, like an orgy?"
Tee: "Yeah, ha - so I told everyone to have a look ..."
Me: "No seriously ... was it really a meercat swingers party? Was there any girl on girl action too? Some funky seventies music?"
Tee: Laughing "Actually, I believe I saw .... I saw .... HAHAHAHAHAH"
Me: "What!? What did you see?"
Tee: Whispering "I saw a tiny bowl on the table, with all of their tiny meercat-swinging keys in it!"
Much, much laughter. I couldn't believe the conversation we were having. It got better.
Tee: "So I told everyone to look at them all, and Tomcat (Tees 6-year old son) saw them and said mum, mum, what are they doing?"
Me: "Ok I'm loving how you felt the need to point out to everyone - including the children - the meercat s.ex show ... what did you tell Tomcat?"
Tee: Starting to laugh again .."Actually, he thought he worked it out himself. He said "Ohhhh, I know mum - they're huddling up together, they must be cold.""
Silence on the phone. Except it wasn't really silence, it was our laughter going into overdrive, like a dog whistle.
