The Green eyed monster

Bloggie friends!

There I was standing in a crowded tube train carriage when this couple gets on.

The man says to me “oh wow - such long lovely hair” to which I automatically reply “thank you” because I’m polite only for the man’s partner to say something to him.

I would repeat what she said here, except she spoke in French. I only know she was unhappy because much as I think the French language is sexy – there was nothing remotely sensual with the way they spoke at each other.

True story.

Charlie says: Green is the colour of grass.



Happy Independence Day to all my fantastic American bloggie friends!

I'm off-line for most of today but I promise to catch up with y’all throughout the week.

Yay!

ooh la la! It's comforting to know French women are the same as the rest of us! Crabs.

Kitty, were you causing trouble with your beautiful appearance?

klahanie said...

Well, that was a hair raising experience.
Penny says, 'Green is the colour (color) of American money, y'all' :)
And lets hope the Americans have a peaceful and positive July 4th. Very nice of them to celebrate my birthday, one day early, eh :)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Was the Frenchman's girlfriend a green-eyed monster - poor man if he can't have an opinion of his own. Charlie is far more relaxed!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

LOL! I can well imagine what she said--to him, specifically.

I remember my ex used to comment to me about how gorgeous a woman's legs were or how lovely she was, etc. Wasn't particularly good for my self-esteem.

Talli Roland said...

Haha! I can only imagine what she said...

Fuzzy Tales said...

Apparently it's also Charlie's birthday today, according to the CB! So a very happy birthday, Charlie! We hope you get extra treats!

Madeleine said...

Green eyed grass monster indeed. I hope you tossed your beautiful long hair haughtily in her face! Enjoy your blog awayday ;O)

Ann said...

Still you had to smiling just a little inside. A compliment indeed to make a woman smile. A comment on your crowning glory. Yay for you and you beautiful long hair.

Clarissa Draper said...

Yes, the ugly green eyed monster. I think it's nice you have long hair.

Hello, Charlie!

Marg said...

Oh Charlie, you look so pretty sitting in those nice yellow flowers and green grass. Hope all of you have a fantastic Tuesday.

soggibottom said...

I'm sure there is a moral there somewhere !
Hi ya Charlie ol bean, looking pretty spruce yourself little mate.
:-) x x x

notesfromnadir said...

French & Italian are the 2 most beautiful languages.

You're right about green -- Charlie poses nicely in the grass! :)

KarenMcG said...

Humph! "The Boys" and I bet the woman was a wee bit jealous of your beautiful, long hair...that the man noticed.

Now Charlie? He's got a good idea there...to just recline in the grass.

Ellie Garratt said...

Yes. I can image what she said wasn't pleasant. But yay for you! How flattering!

Len Lambert said...

I love this photo of Charlie, Kitty! :) And why do you have such beautiful shiny hair as to cause trouble on the train? LOL!

Summer Ross said...

Being spoke "at" and being spoken "to" are very different. I took 4 years of french. I hope you had a terrific day!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh Oh ...the green eyed monster is easy to understand in nay language!

Thanks for you holiday good wishes! As you saw in my post we had a fun day. :) Charlie looks splendid in the grass.

Patsy said...

What a hair raising situation, Kitty!

Theresa Milstein said...

You can't help it if you have long, beautiful hair, even if it's coming between other couples. As the commercial for shampoo used to say, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."

William Kendall said...

That is a gorgeous picture of Charlie.
