    Yes, I was a naive teenager who'd been set up - put it this way, I was off straight away, never to return. The lights were low, I was in a city I'd never been to before (Liverpool) and I couldn't believe the number of young 'blonde' females who appeared to be available. As they say, if something appears too good to be true.... :lol:

    Sounds like a cock and ball story to me.

    That's Somerset for you, lived in Yeovil for 3 years myself and got confused so many times, even though my maternal grandmother was from just outside Dorchester and having holidayed down there every summer as long as I could remember, I never had a problem with their dialect and colloquialisms.
    Saying that, I'm sure the people of Somerset were even more confused at my north eastern accent than I was of theirs.
