Silly Old Sod: Locked In

This is an absolutely hilarious true story by “Silly Old Sod.” I couldn’t find a reblog button for WP so I’ve done screenshots of his lead-in and put a link at the bottom so you can go to his blog for most of the story. It is well worth it, so please read to the end. 

Now, go here to ready the rest of the story:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Thanks for posting this Judy, I got a great “humorous mental vision” out of the sight of Trev in his embarrassing show window situation, I guess we all have such stories to tell but which take great courage to post publicly. I have one which is so bad that I can only tell it to my closest friends. Thanks Trev Jones your writing has made you a new person to follow, and also a pleasure finding out that you are a fan of the lingering British humor, which we Americans seem to have left behind along with Slapstick. My favorite was (still is) Benny Hill almost the last of slapstick’s, now gone, such as our Bob Hope, Fibber McGee and Molly, Marx Brothers, George Burns, et al. Too bad we have lost them all~! Maybe it would do the world a great service to do away with some of those “shoot um up” gun shows and killing and replace them with a little more humor. An ounce of humor can do more good than all of that heavy programming. Keep um coming~!

        Of course I did, and remembered that you went to the Rose Bowl where his daughter made you uncomfortable.. I remember the unimportant (to my life) things~! Sorry I still like slapstick more than standup comics and the ones today do not think they are being funny unless they use foul language, getting a laugh every time they use the “F” word, so I no longer watch them and never go to comedy clubs anymore. The British are still enjoying this type of art.

          He was British, you know. He and his brothers had a vaudeville act there. He paid them their whole lives not to work as he didn’t want the competition or to be known as a hero. I probably told you this before. I was a friend of one of his brother’s wife.
