The Rail Clip

I am describing the rail clip to MasterM

MasterM
What! You took a lump of metal?
MrsM
It is a limited edition.
MasterM
I bet they just ordered too many for the construction
and wanted to get rid of them.
MrsM
They have a plaque on them.
MasterM
Did you get one for me?
MrsM
You only got one if you were there.
MasterM
That's a shame
because then we would have been
a three-rail-clip family.

Sadly, he is not as impressed as I had hoped.

But it is a small shiny thing.

Shouldn't he be genetically predisposed ( I don't think I can spell that word) to liking it?

No.
I can see how he might not be.

where I were a lad I was lucky to get a clip round the ears !

Apropos of nothing I am reminded of the French for a paper clip which is a 'trombone' as in 'Ne mettre pas les trombones dans le photocopier' which looks a little odd the first time one comes across it.

Trust the French to be different

Um, yeah, I might just be with him on this one. But you be sure to enjoy yours!
