Male bonding

Apart from our nice 3 piece suite the cat has clawed and shredded it's knocked over a figurine that lies there prone, beheaded. I'm quite adept and nimble fingered- Have I got the knack to use a tube of superglue and stick her noggin back? The bottled glue is near opaque, unseen and so I doubt if any glue is left inside, then all of it squirts out. I'll grab the phone, dial 101 and get help if I'm able to prise my thumb and forefinger from off the kitchen table. Should I get free then this might be the chance to commit crime since two of my poor fingerprints won't grow back for some time. I've scraped and polished tirelessly but the table's still got glue on. Should one more figurine get smashed- I'll just go buy a new one.

Ah bondage--I mean bonding. Well, this reminds me of my own superglue adventures. There are many as it is very strange stuff.

Love your humour, Viv:) Super glue does bond quickly...I know for a fact through a negative experience; best to wear plastic gloves when using it! once bitten, twice shy:) // paul

Many thanks for the welcome. Nice to have somewhere to let caged words fly free. Have dipped a toe into some of your works- love them (and it's nice to learn a new word a day; in this instance 'Deliquesce') Thanks for that. Love 'n hugs, Viv (a.k.a 'MisterViv) x

Thanks for the warm welcome, SKAT A, from a newbie occasional wordsmith. I've enjoyed scanning your work- you have as many moods as the sea, and we all like the sea. I live in Derby, UKwith my cat, Celeste, and enjoy the challenge of cobbling words together to laugh or cry at. I've had some published in my local paper and broadcast on national radio which is a bonus and not my prime focus, since even if just my cat likes listening to one of my efforts I'm happy. Very cathartic, too. Love 'n hugs, Viv (a.k.a 'MisterViv
