Show of Hands

So this folk duo were doing a gig at the Swan in High Wycombe, and they were being shown to their dressing room. The door had their names on it which impressed them, since they were more accustomed to dressing rooms that said "gentlemen" on the door. However they were less impressed when they saw inside.

"Oh no, they haven't cleaned it!" the manager moaned, as they looked over the strewn bottles, clothes, spilt drinks, odd stains, and general wreckage.

"What happened?" asked a musician.

"It was an end-of tour party."

"Who?" they asked, imagining some debauched rock band.

"Sooty," said the manager. "It got a bit out of hand."

Teehee, that's very silly. I can't imagine Sooty performing in a pub tho, for one they probably don't allow kids into the pub? and for two I imagine he's busy rehearsing for pantomime somewhere at this time of year!

BTW, are you coming to drinks on Sat? I know your lovely fiancee is busy (or was planning to be last time we spoke) but she thought you'd be free? Anyway hope you can make it.

The Swan is actually a large theatre. (Perhaps there was a pub on the site in the past -- dunno.) I won't be able to make it on Saturday as I will be doing things with Rachel. (as it were)

Ah, when you said a folk duo in a gig at the Swan I just assumed you meant pub!

Have fun on Sat, thanks for letting me know.
