Flotsam And Jetsam

Tuesday, March 06, 2018

THIS came from one of our regular contributor the other day.

It's always fun with my mates, he starts.

Yesterday I was drinking grog with a friend when he got a call.

He spoke in the vernacular and told the caller to be careful about daytime mosquitoes.

He advised the caller to always have Aerogard insect repellent with him because of where he lived.

After the call he says, "taki".

Then he spots our Aerogard bottle and says, "Aww you are prepared, very good. You know these dengue mosquitoes are dangerous and very big."

I asked, "How big?"

He looks around the garage and spots a few uto lying around.

He points to a small one and says, "Just a little smaller than that one."

(That's it, I'm getting myself an armoured beekeeper's suit.)
