Weekly Photo Challenge: Ocean

27 Mar

The Hub is a bit of a girl: he taught me to cook when we got married.  The first meal I ever made for him was burnt pasty and chips.  A great deal of burnt slop followed before I got the hang of it.

He can also sew, which brings me in a roundabout way to the prompt: he makes fabulous costumes.  It’s all bits lying around the house, imagination and sewing machines.  This one is Spud as a pirate (what do you mean, it’s a tenuous link at best?  Pirates sail on the ocean – just ask the Somalians):


 He made so many great costumes when Spud was in primary school that mothers would ask me where we bought them; when they discovered they were handmade, they would ask if he took commissions (for their dancing children).  Pity he was too ill, or being a bit of a girl would have paid off.  Instead, all he has is a mocking wife. 

But he’s generous, too.  Out of the blue the other day, he said to me, ‘Fancy a cruise to Somalia?’

Different ways of wearing a balaclava.

Late one night a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs.  ‘Give me your money,’ he demanded. Indignant, the affluent man replied, ‘You can’t do this – I am a United States congressman!’  ‘In that case,’ said the mugger, ‘Give me MY money.’
