I have a new carer – they do keep changing – she’s a laugh. From the West Indies, a bit younger than me, and with grown up kids, and even grandchildren.
We get on really well.
She said I sound very cultured.
That was a slight surprise, given I’m from Pontypool, and instinctively ( rightly or wrongly ) I’d rather not come across as ‘ posh ‘.
Anyway, she did then undo the ‘compliment ‘ a bit, by saying I sounded like Simon Cowell.
I asked if she could possibly think of someone else instead that I sounded like, not being a big Cowell fan really.
She thought a bit and said ‘ yes… yes… Roger Moore ‘
I’ll go with the one time James Bond actor, rather than the manicured, high trouser wearer of dubious sexuality, and I’m going to practice the Roger eyebrow thing, forthwith.
I must be posh, I just wrote ‘ forthwith ‘…
And I’ve got a mate called Rupert.
And one called Quentin, as well.
