Several Cubic Feet Of Women

Somewhere in the world it is time for breakfast. If Astrid were in that part of the world she would now have something to read. My latest column is out.

My dad says it is good, but every time he compliments me I always feel as if he is about to ask for money (he never does). If you think it is good, send it to all your friends, relatives, and elected representatives. If you think it is bad, just keep it to yourself.

One of my favourite 'Cope Columns' so far!

"Then I shuffle back to the bedroom and discuss the Minnesota Vikings with my wife's teddy bear" - Very funny!

It's hard to know what a group of women are talking about when they get into full flow like thay. I was once sat in the pub with three gorgeous blonde girls and I thoroughly enjoyed the jealous looks I got from other guys in the room.

But the entire time I was desperately looking around for one of my male friends, I was completely lost in the conversation and needed something bloke-like to talk about. It was traumatic.

The answer to your question is:

6 acher feet.

I'm with Curly.

Well, no, you know what I mean.
Lovely!

Dave Morris said...

Yes, best column yet. Well written.

Married into the Osmonds? Wow, I hope you got Marie... there was a time as a kid that I held her picture in one hand.

Great Column! Great Writing! Now I miss my two sisters about 2000 miles away.

Looking foward to reading more, found my way over via Dave's blog.

Astrid is off to bed now, knowing that within no time, her bowl of oatmeal is ready and another column of Chris is waiting to be devoured by her!!!

You play the didgeridoo? That's impressive, if a little strange.

Chris Cope said...

Indeed, I play the didge -- primarily as a way to show off my ability to circular breathe.

Personally I prefer the equestrian method of measurment and would measure the laddies in hands.

(Despite what some might say, more than a handful is not a waste.)

Or you could measure in Pechya (anchient greek unit around the same size as a cubit). Then you couldn't be accused of calling them fat as they won't understand the result.

Erk that last post was meant to read Ladies and not Laddies.

Astrid said...

Yes, this column tasted good, very good! I really like your sense of humor, Chris. And I had never heard of your joke of "I never really miss my brother -- I always take the time to aim." It must be, coz I am hiding on cloud number 9 way too much for the last 200 years. Anyhow, keep up the gr-rr-eat work!!!

wait, you can do circular breathing?

it's tough to circular breathe when you sing, however, and unnecessary when playing guitar, so it seems foolish of me to try and learn at this point...

you rule.
