So, today, we had a few problems. We ran out of petrol on the way from school to Tesco's (not the best start), but while in Tesco, I made a cardinal error. Perhaps not as daft as going up against a Sicilian when death is on the line, but nearly.

Y'see, I need to buy some more toys for the school playground, so I thought I'd get some prices. So me, [personal profile] miss_s_b and [personal profile] amazing_holly, having finished our shop, took a quick detour into the toy aisle. Their rangeof die-cast toys is both varied and cheap, which is what I needed to know. Unfortunately, on the way out, my eye was taken by some Transformers toys on offer. Now, when I was a kid, Transformers were my favourite toys EVER (I even had a complete run of the UK print of the comic).

So, naturally, I had a quick glance. And Miss Holly saw a Bumblebee, and fell in love. Jennie saw one she wanted, and despite me pointing out we're a bit skint, she decided we should buy some "for Holly". I got an Optimus Prime (never had one as a kid, too expensive).

"I want my Megatron"

So, in the checkout queue, I had two problems. One was that the girl was rather pretty, so someone couldn't resist flirting with her and telling her how nice her hair was. The bigger problem, of course, was someone else complaining and saying I want my Megatron in a bit of a strop.

So, out of the 6 year old and the 31 year old (who's been seriously proposed for a peerage), which one do you think was flirting outrageously, and which was having a strop over being able to play with the toy we hadn't paid for yet.

What do you think?

I quite like the idea of Jennie being a Baroness, which in turn would make Holly an Honourable. But could you be a Lady like Mark? ;)

...no-one was able to do both things, I'm guessing? ;)

As if it wasn't obvious, Holly was doing the flirting and Jennie the one having a strop. ;o)

Seriously, those Rigg women need to learn how to mulitask.

(It's simple; "hey, you have pretty hair. Don't you think he should get me a Megatron?"

Were you the one complaining about not being able to play with the toy?
