The true meaning of words – 4

This excerpt is from a collection of funny stories

Intuition          n          The feeling that you really should have paid attention in class at school rather than having to pay for private lessons.

Intention         n          The desire to stay under canvas during the night, which slowly seeps away as the temperature drops. You end up staying in the local hotel overnight instead.

Drastic             n          When camping in the forest, these are the final two pieces of wood that you are prepared to rub together to try and start a fire.

Sober               v          To weep out loud because it is early in the morning and you haven’t had an alcoholic drink in over 8 hours. You aren’t an alcoholic though, you just enjoy a drink, don’t you?

Stereotype       n          One of those people to whom it is really important to have the most up-to-date and in fashion method to play their music.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
