I may have mentioned this before and if I have then sorry! I can’t be bothered to trawl back through all my posts to find which one it might be in (possibly amongst some comments somewhere!)
Anyway, I am – for reasons that currently escape me – participating in the local production of the pantomime Dick Whittington this year as part of the chorus. A pantomime which has scope for plenty of double meanings – well smut really!
So being a stalwart lot we threw ourselves into the line:
We’re all chums when the Mayor comes
until that is I failed to keep a straight face and got the giggles and it was pointed out to the director of the pantomime that perhaps this was just something she might want to change!
With a flourish she amended it to
We all cheer as dick is here
Which reduced the chorus to hysterics.
So, sadly for the residents of our village we are now singing
We all cheer as the mayor is here.
so no possibility of smut there then!!
I see my role in the chorus as one specifically designed to upstage the main characters and possibly to make them forget their lines!
My role in the harem scene is something I will leave to your imagination. Suffice it to say I refuse to reveal my midriff – on the grounds that too many pensioners might suffer!
I really must get round to learning the words to all the songs though!!……..
