Not to be sexist but…

Pat:  Darling when this programme is finished could you make a note of the woman’s name, I have to go.’

 MTL: Hrrrymph!
 
Later:

 Pat: Did you manage to catch her name?

 
MTL:  Smith.

 
Fortunately I had the Radio Times and discovered that her name actually was Smith:
 Annette Karmaloff- Smith in fact.  So much easier for googling.

God bless the internet for making male companionship less burdensome for all womankind.

But why did he want to know?

Pat said...

Judy: he didn't want to know. It was I who heard an interesting discussion and wanted to find out more about the speaker so I needed her name.

Marjolein said...

At least he did catch her name! (partly)

Pat said...

Marjolein: and he is not into computers so has no conception of Smith and google:)

Granny Annie said...

Ditto what The Unbearable Banishment said. LOL

Scarlet Blue said...

I think he should get a gold star for Smith. I would have been given an 'Eh?'
Sx

Pat said...


Granny Annie:
Yes he's a smart young man:)

Scarlet: I told him and he agrees with you:)

Mage said...

Thanks, smiling here.

Macy said...

Yeah. I'd have been lost at the Karmaloff bit too.

Pat said...

Mage: I expect you've been there:)

Macy: oh he will be pleased.

You're right: "Annette Karmiloff-Smith is a professorial research fellow at the Developmental Neurocognition Lab at Birkbeck, University of London." What sort of programme was that you were watching??

Pat said...

Gadjo: it was a radio programme
http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b01pzr00/.
She was talking about her work as a psychologist with children.
Whilst writing about my childhood my memeories were often photographic and - out of nowhere - I remembered an image which had been dormant for nearly 80 years. It just occurred to me that she would be the sort of person to discuss it with. However I don't expect I shall do anything about it and let it lie in the past.

Men do have their uses, don't they? Savannah is wicked, tee hee hee.

That programme sounds rather interesting...a child psychologist. I must google.
