  2. Richard - don't trouble yourself trying to understand the workings of a woman's mind or her twisted sense of logic. I gave that up years ago. Here's an example of an all too regular conversation I find myself having with Mrs. Kenny:

    Her: What?
    Me: What do you mean what?
    Her: That look you gave me.
    Me: I didn't.
    Her: Yes you did.
    (above two lines repeated several times)
    Me. Oh bollocks!
    Her: Charming!
    Me: Double bollocks.
