Desert here I come. by perfectbitch on 22 November 2005 7:48pm
Well folks, I am off to Tunisia tomorrow morning. I have to leave home at 02.50 to get to Gatwick for a 05,00 check in. I'm quite anxious surprisingly but I think it's because this will be my first proper holiday without Nick and I feel a little guilty. Stupid of me but there you go.
I'll look in when I return. Linz.

Have a great time, Linz - you deserve a holiday after all you have been through. Hope you get a ride on a camel! Sue

You want to watch those Camels.
The last time I was on one, another Camel came up behind me and took an interest in my ears!!!!!

A camel once bit my sister.

Will you be making a pilgrimmage to where Bwian was Kwoosified? Give a kiss to that nice, blonde, curly haired Centoowion for me! And don't forget to tip the lepers more than 'alf a dinari.

Have a great time!

LOL Sminobe.
Two silly stories about Camels. The first, I have to take you back to January, 1997. In my first Toastmasters club, we used to go out for coffee afterwards. The waitress was a real wise acre. She asked my Club President who we were. She said, Toastmasters. "What do you do?," the waitress asked.
"We give speeches."
"To each other?"
Cathy points to me. "Mike just returned from giving speeches in South Africa."

And now the punchline.
"Who did he speak to, camels?"
I swallowed my coffee the wrong way. We had a South African club member. If Mark's eyes were guns, she would have fallen dead at his feet. With pain in his face, he patiently said, camels were in North Africa.
This kid didn't miss a beat. "Well maybe Mike over there was speaking in North South Africa."

Mark gave up. I was now seeing visions of camels and having a geographic nervous breakdown. The kid did get $75 in tips from us she was so entertaining. Sadly enough, they fired her. We told the manager he was a dingbat for doing so, but to no avail.
I kissed her hand on the way out...

The second story was the Bactrian Camel in Wenceslas Square in Prague. It was being used for a commercial for Pilsner Beer. The green company blanket was draped over it's two humps.

There, my life with camels. Luckily, none of them bit me, but thanks to the waitress, I still have camelphobia.
