A valuable lesson for women in how men prioritise

I’m celebrating the end of the winter NH season with a rare non-racing blog post from which I think we can all learn.

 

At dawn the telephone rings . . .

 

“Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house.”

“Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?”

“Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot; he is dead.”

“My parrot: dead? The one that won the International competition?”

 

“Si, Senor, that’s the one.”

“Damn! That’s a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did he die from?”

“From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod…”

“Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?”

“Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse.”

 

“Dead horse? What dead horse?”

“The thoroughbred, Senor Rod.”

“My prize thoroughbred is dead?”

“Yes, Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart.”

“Are you insane? What water cart?”

“The one we used to put out the fire, Senor.”

“Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?”

“The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire.”

“What the hell? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle?”

“Yes, Senor Rod.”

“But there’s electricity at the house! What was the candle for?”

“For the funeral, Senor Rod.”

“WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL?”

“Your wife’s, Senor Rod. She showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new Ping G15 204g titanium head golf club with the TFC 149D graphite shaft.”

SILENCE…

 

LONG SILENCE…

 

VERY LONG SILENCE . . .

“Ernesto, if you broke that driver, you’re in trouble my friend!”

  1. As it should be Joe, as it should be.

    Sincere thanks for all your valuable insight this past season and I look forward to the next campaign.

    When does the new season start boss (lol)!

    Don’t tell me your thoughts….would I be right in suggesting the Paddy Power meeting at Cheltenham in November followed by the ‘Charlie Hall’ etc., etc?
