'ear 'ear

I was out for fabulous dinner in Miller & Cook in Mullingar.


As I stood up to leave I heard a ..klunk. One of my new earrings had opened and fallen out, hitting the floor.
They were hoops so did actually made a little sound...maybe not exactly a klunk. That was for dramatic effect.
I searched under our table but couldn't see it anywhere. I had just given up hope when I espied it...at the foot of a man at a nearby table.
What should I do?
I went up to him as he was having an animated conversation with his companions.
"Excuse me," I interrupted.
All the diners at the table stopped to look at me.
"Please don't get alarmed or excited but I'm just going to bend down for a moment!"
There was a collective intake of breath while I bent down and .......retrieved my earring.
"Taadah" I held it aloft.
A moment's silence was followed by howls of laughter.
"Well I didn't want to make any sudden unannounced movements" I explained.
I wish I could have taken a photo of the shock/horror/excitement on his face!


Close up to prove that I had really been wearing hoop earrings and it wasn't a very clever chat up line!

This speed and all or nothing style has certainly made him a controversial character in the paddock, with fans either loving or hating him, but one thing's certain if you're in front of Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses him, he'll overtake you or crash trying..

    You have to wipe your seat yourself, you see. These haven't been dusted for months. Only the Club House, where all the influential people sit, has been cleaned. That was nine years and an Nike Air Force 1 Cheap Outlet entire console generation ago, and I'm Fake Yeezys still waiting for something Cheap Jordans Online similar. Hell, even the sequel, Red Faction: Armageddon, forgot what made the first game great by inexplicably removing the wide open setting and unlimited destruction and moving the action underground, where you mostly just smash pipes.
