Valentine's Day

Postby Ian » Fri Feb 12, 2010 3:39 pm

I've booked a table at my favourite club for me and the wife.

I hope it goes better than last year.

She only potted three balls all night :wink:

I'm not sure the joke survives translation from your quaint British slang: personally,
I've never heard "potted" used this way.

Perhaps you could subtitle your posts in the future? :wink:

I'll just say that it involved naughty bits. :shock:
Defenders of the true American version of Revolutionary English would have understood
"she only pocketed three balls" methinks.
