Paying a visit to the Widow Henderson

Henderson has been dead since 2016.

I think I shall call on her tomorrow - damn the twitching net brigade.

My time is come.

Indeed, strike whilst the iron is hot, grasp her firmly by the nettles or whatever access point comes to hand.

It's only been 12 hours ffs.

I assume that "Paying a visit to the Widow Henderson" is some kind of antipodean euphemism for ghastly deeds with livestock. I can't say I'm surprised.

I shall adopt a respectful tone laced with the faintest hint of lechery.

Something along the lines of, "My dear Mrs Henderson. Allow me to extend my renewed sympathies for your loss and I hope and trust that time has been a great healer. May I say you're looking very handsome? Those weeds really accentuate your hourglass figure."

Hair slicked down in a centre-parting, gripping tattered daffodils from the garage.

Straw boater at a rakish tilt.

"I know it seems soon, after all your old man didn't even like me using his lawn mower, ha ha!"

What the fuck is this thread about. And yes, I know it’s a lapsed thread.

welcome back btw.

Give it the works, the full Milk Tray shinning up the drainpipe with the gift wrapped box routine. People need cheering up in these difficult times.

Was he of a similar build to you? If so his old suits might be a useful addition to your wardrobe.

Drainpipe man wears a fetching all black catsuit, I seem to remember. At least you look a bit dashing if nicked for breaking and entering. It is of course the risk of the latter which arouses the admiration of the ladies, the appalling risk just to deliver their lime and caramel surprise.

FeudalClink - 12 Feb 2018 13:42:36 (#12 of 230)

Is it about wanking?

Macpaddy - 12 Feb 2018 13:44:38 (#13 of 230)

A black catsuit is no match for tight, mustard coloured short shorts. Just don't wear your purple shirt - hopefully her mourning is done with. You don't want to reignite it.

solomongursky - 12 Feb 2018 13:45:35 (#14 of 230)

Black Magic bloke had black trousers, polo neck jumper.

Bruno: the Black catsuit - balaclava or not?

thatshallot - 12 Feb 2018 13:46:10 (#16 of 230)

#12: That would be Mrs Palmer and her five daughters.

Or so I'm led to believe.

Macpaddy - 12 Feb 2018 13:48:32 (#17 of 230)

Balaclava? Are you going to woo her or burglarise her home?

Wear you tight mustard shorts and try to accentuate the presence of little lapsed.

lapsedcat - 12 Feb 2018 13:52:50 (#18 of 230)

Burglarise is such an ugly word.

mingmong - 12 Feb 2018 14:05:33 (#19 of 230)

"If there's anything I can do, Mrs H. And I mean, anything"

"I happen to have a spare ticket to the theatre tomorrow night. It's a touring production of The Norman Conquests featuring Arthur Bostrom. Would you do me the great honour of accompanying me and allowing me to take you for a spot of dinner beforehand?"
