I bought some hairdressing scissors, at Boots the Chemists, I’ve written about Boots before. At the the till the sales assistant sighed, ‘I am sorry the display on my till tells me I’ve got to check, are you old enough to purchase sharp pointy scissors; are you?
Well, old enough in years, but I’ve probably peaked from a safety pointy of view; without my glasses on its probably not such a good idea to let me loose with them, not if my husband and children wish to retain their ear lobes.
The assistant continues, ‘It was the same at Christmas, we couldn’t sell Christmas crackers to anyone under 16 years of age in case they made explosives from them, FOR GOODNESS SAKE, I lived in Northern Ireland with my husband when he was in the army, I can tell you how to make a bomb big enough to blow a hole in a wall and it wasn’t from Christmas crackers.’ she is well in her stride now, ‘What you need’ and she proceeds to give me the ‘recipe’ …………….
And if you think I am going to publish that information you are wrong, Tom and Joe read this blog, from time to time and they have tried building flame throwers already.
