AND NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT
A VIEW ON SCOTTISH ROMANTIC DOMESTICITY
As Winter comes with its cold blasts, it is nice to know romance is not dead...
A thoughtful Scottish husband was putting on his coat and hat to make his way down to the local pub. He turned to his wee wife before leaving and said,
"Maggie - put your hat and coat on, lassie."
She replied, "Aw, Jock that's nice. Are you taking me tae the pub with you?"
"Nay," Jock replied "I'm turning the heater off while I'm oot."
