“That was passion mate; pure ecstasy wasn’t it Ann.’

I don’t know about that said Ann; when you dropped you pants I asked you who you were going to please with that little thing and you know what he said.

“Me that’s who.’

Brenda and Roger fell about laughing.’

“Well your secrets out now said Roger.’

“Ha bloody ha replied Ronnie sulking.’

“Lighten up Ron; I was only kidding, divent be getting a strop on will you.’

They walked along Grey Street then crossed the road to Pizza Hut where they bought a twelve inch pizza each and ate it as they walked back to the car.

It was only ten o’clock so Roger suggested that they went to Tynemouth for an hour.

“They ended up in the “Stuffed Dog” where Roger drank a pint of diet coke and the girls a lager and lime. Ronnie had a pint of cider after trying the lager which he took back because it was flat after he was given another which was the same he elected for a bottle of Bulmers cider.’

“I’m bloody sure they are watering down the beers in here said Ronnie.’

Gnats piss tasted better than this crap shouted Ronnie so that the bar staff could hear.’

“Alright Ronnie calm down; we don’t want to get ourselves thrown out do we.’

“I’ve been thrown out of better pubs than this one mate.’

“Come on mate just because your lass said you had a little dick you’ve been like a bear with a sore head.’

“I haven’t got a little dick though.’

“Alright man; we believe you.’

“It’s you that has dick envy according to what Sigmund Freud says in my psychology book.’

“Hey, I’m not envious of anybody’s dick thank you very much; mine works just fine.’

“Your so easy to wind up Ronnie said Ann with a laugh.’

“Come on sup up we’re going to the Percy Arms where at least they serve some proper real ale.’

“I thought we were just having the one mate.’

“Christ Roger, we only have two and a bit weeks left to enjoy ourselves before they cart us off to some God forsaken place for six months.’

“Is that right Roger, asked Brenda?’
