MasterM, Interior Designer

MasterM has a job in Buenos Aires for the next five months
with a seven room flat to rattle around in.
He tells us that the rooms are massive and rather bare
so he is looking for cheap ways to decorate.

MrsM suggests that he print some of his photographs
but MasterM is dismissive.
He would need so many because the walls are so huge.
Anyway, he has other plans...

MasterM
A fishtank would look really cool...

MrsM
Gasp

MasterM
I went to a petshop today
on my way back from the hairdressers
but they didn't have any Japanese fighting fish...


MrsM
breathes out

MasterM
...but they did have a really beautiful pair of parrots

MrsM
NO!!

MasterM
...I could give them to somebody as a gift when I leave...

MrsM
DEFINITELY NOT!!

MasterM
...there were some really cute Russian Mice

MrsM
Have you actually thought
how many mice
you could have running around your flat
by the time you leave?


MasterM
Good point!

Maybe I will just get a lizard.


p.s. fear not, dear Animal Lovers,
this is merely evidence that
MasterM is missing the endless opportunities
to tease his mother.

Each and every animal he has mentioned, joking or not, carry DISEASES. DISEASES I TELL YOU.

Nothing like winding your mum up is there? I could write a book on what my 4 have done to me.
Master M sounds like a great guy.

Well it does sound like he is teasing you a bit. At least he didn't think about a snake!

I am glad to here he has gotten his hair cut! :)

eurolush said...

I love that men think of decorating as adding...pets. Animals? Fish? RODENTS?

Snort.

PS-What an amazing experience he's having.

I'm so glad he is teasing. The hairs are still standing up on the back of my neck at the thought of all those mice.
