Patience

Mrs M absolutely hates it when I tease her with the line "I've got big news but I'll tell you later." Personally I am just as liable to forget there's big news in the offing if someone says that to me. But such a sentence will tend to send her into a bout of profound and constant questioning until I crack and tell her. I'm going to see how many of you are the same.

I've got big news but I'll tell you later.

As a woman, I can tell you that that sentence winds me up, too. As does "I've bought you something, but it's a surprise."

Any judge in the world will let a woman off for killing her spouse if the guy says stuff like that!

OK so what is the tentative date for the interview about you and your blog?

And which publication?

Cheers :-)

Let me guess. Based on the strength of that brilliant Best Man speech a publisher is offering you a huge advance on a Toastmaster book series titled "Simon Says Laugh... please.".

The cynical half in me asks what news could you know that would be both big, not known to 1/2 the world already and something I would be interested in knowing.

The other half wants to throttle you. TELL US ALREADY!

Soon enough, my friends. I'm saving it for a slow blog day.
