Up and down and round and round we go again

From a conversation with Carolyn this lunchtime:

Carolyn: Did I tell you I've entered a trampolining competition?
Me: [Hysterical laughter] Why?
Carolyn: It was an accident.

And, before you ask, unfortunately, no, you won't be seeing any photographs of Carolyn trampolining: I already asked, and was rather robustly refused.

Earlier in our lunchbreak, I decided to embarrass Carolyn (as I had threatened to do on dozens of occasions) by re-enacting the events of 20th November, 2001, when a babe jumped into the same compartment as me as I passed through a revolving door. During this re-enactment, however, Carolyn (unwittingly) performed the rôle of Yours Truly, and Yours Truly played the babe.

"I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'VE ACTUALLY GONE AND DONE IT!" gasped Carolyn, as we shuffled awkwardly through the revolving door outside her office.

Neither could I: I went bright red, apparently.

  1. I met my wife in a revolving door....& we've been going around together (along with this joke) ever since!
