Both prickly. Both begin with the letter ‘P’.
Coincidence? I'll let you decide.
(Don't get me started on bloody pufferfish.)
I'll tell you what's mildly irritating: people who say ‘reached out to’ when they mean ‘contacted’.

A somewhat misreported (to make me look even more awesome) conversation with Jen in the car this morning:
R: I’ve just thought of a new game. It’s called the Pop-star Biscuit Game. We take it in turns to name pop-stars who sound like biscuits. For example, Lionel Rich Tea. Your turn…
J: …Limp Bizkit.
R: No, that’s cheating. You can’t have ‘biscuit’ as part of the name. My turn… Jammy Dodger Miller.
R: Godley and Custard Cream.
R: Chocolate Bourbono.
R: Oreo Speedwagon.
R: I was Googling brands of biscuits before we came out. Can you tell?
J: KitKat Stevens.
R: KitKats are wafers, not biscuits.
R: Run Garibaldi MC.
R: I win!
The secret to winning the Pop-star Biscuit Game is planning. Planning and misreporting.
Over to you…

Turns out I’ve been mispronouncing Charlize Theron’s name for years.
I wondered why she never returned my calls.
