Hooray! And Yay! And Woo! And Whoop-de-diddly-doo!
Tickets for the New Orleans Saints versus the San Diego Chargers playing at Wembley – Club Wembley tickets no less! – plus tickets for the pre-game Tailgate party held at the terrifyingly awesome-sounding Palace Of Industry arrived today.
At stupid o’clock in the morning.
When I was downstairs.
But the door was locked.
And the keys were upstairs.
Because I’d just got up to inject the cat.
And I’ve got a long hall.
And steep twisting stairs.
And a long upstairs hall.
And I run like a buffalo.
And I dread to think what a buffalo-like running me sporting only a dressing gown thundering down the hallway, up the stairs, down the other hallway, grabbing the keys, thundering back down the hallway, down the stairs, and down the original hallway would have looked like to an outsider or sounded like to our neighbours.
But who cares! I’ve recovered from my mild heart attack following all that exertion and I’ve got NFL tickets for the Saints and Chargers!
I’m really going to start pushing for more Whoop-de-diddly-doo in general conversation.
