Topic: Understanding Andy And Flo
Even though he is not an ideal roll model there was a comic strip character called Andy Capp. For those who don’t know Andy Capp the nearest thing to him I can think of is Homer Simpson. When I was a kid many of my school friends had dads who were town drunks and Andy Capp type characters which you don’t see here much in NZ today. Woman put up with a lot back then which they wouldn’t do today. I spent a bit of time today going through a friends collection of old Andy Capp comics when these words based loosely on a kiwi version of Andy Capp came into my head.
Understanding Andy and Flo.
This is my romantic story.
It all started.
When my girl said to me.
Where would you rather be .
Sitting with me having a cup of tea.
Or sitting with your mates drinking Speights.
Telling stories ones that I would hate.
Not feeling brave.
Thinking I will have to behave.
Oh dear oh dear I said.
The answer must be clear.
You know me well.
Would I rather be here.
Or away from here having a beer
You can answer that question yourself.
I lovingly said to her.
She looked at me unhappily.
You can go to hell I know you well.
You can take of from here and have a beer with your mates.
In that moment I knew she loved me.
She said I don’t suppose you will want me to put on a cup of tea.
With a sigh I said.
Looking at her lovingly in the eye.
You have a cup of tea.
That would work perfectly.
Maybe in a bikini .
You would look great.
As I put on my coat and headed out till late.
