SWAGGER

Ted breezed into the house like he owned the place with an cocky smirk plastered all over his face I know that look son; just tell me what you’ve done - you’ve not robbed a bank and now you’re on the run’! He puffed out his chest and strutted with a swagger then jumped on the table and danced like Mick Jagger He said, mum don’t fret, there won’t be a lynch mob - I’ve just had an interview and got my very first job!

I can see the smirk on his face..and puffed chest..feeling proud, as anyone would landing a first job. I have memories like that when my son got a summer job (his first) without having to go for an interview. All the best Jan..a win for you.

This has got to be a winner. Love the fact that mum wonders what bad thing he's done, typical mum response. Go swagger son.
