Every Wednesday night a group of us usually go to the local RSL club for dinner. It's a good meal, good company and there are door prizes and chook raffles and the like. We have fun.
So we've made plans to go, and then we find out it's seafood night. None of us are huge fans of fish and other things sea-ishly edible. Partly because we don't like the taste, and partly because being so far from the sea ya just don't want to risk some things. So one by one we decide not to go.
Shellio rings her partner to let him know. This is what she says to him.
"Hey Babe, we're not going to the club now. Because it's seafood night. So I thought we should go to the takeaway and get fish and chips instead."
Please, tell me I'm not the only person who sees how wrong that is.
