Marriages Made In Heaven?

Commy has been commiserating with female friends about the vagaries of the surname lottery facing women when they marry. Surely, he argued, there must have been occasions where women baulked at the prospect of marriage when realisation of her likely new married name dawned?  Could love really be expected to conquer all if, having fallen […]

Tales Of The Riverbank

In these fast paced, high pressure times, Tooper had been wondering aloud whether he should consider a stress busting hobby when a friend helpfully suggested fishing. A little concerned that this previously seemingly normal individual had suddenly morphed into a fishing evangelist; Tooper allowed himself to be persuaded that a little night fishing might be […]

Cunning Contraception

Commy and friends were recently transfixed by a fascinating insight (given by one of his more studious female counterparts) into the history of contraception. It appears that in more recent times, the origins of the female oestrogen pill can be traced back to sheep!  Apparently it  was developed when scientists noticed that sheep grazing in […]

The Relationship Talk

Commy and friends have been sympathising with one of their young male acquaintances who has been told by his partner that they need to have the ‘relationship talk’. Is there anything more designed to provoke feelings of mortal dread amongst male seasoned veterans than hearing those words, they wondered? After all, how many men have […]

Extreme Sports Pimps

Commy has been listening to friends discussing some of the more dangerous sporting pastimes they have considered participating in.  What is about our humdrum human existences, they wondered, that makes us want to risk life and limb, by throwing ourselves off tall buildings, out of planes or down near vertical icy slopes? Yet while Commy […]

Strong Silent Types

Commy has been listening with surprise to female friends bemoaning a dirth of male ‘strong silent types’. Given that they had previously always informed him that the key to any good relationship was keeping the lines of communication open, he felt compelled to enquire whether what they were now referring to as strong, silent types, […]

Nom de Plume

Commy’s friends have been discussing Celebrities and the naming of their offspring. Can there be any better manifestation of their egos, they wondered, than the saddling of their poor, unsuspecting progeny with such self-indulgent epithets as Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow), Jermajesty (Jermaine Jackson) and Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee – an American actor/comedian, apparently!).  Don’t they realise […]

So Macho!

Commy has been listening to one of his female friends castigating men for laughing at her so -called ‘irrational fear’ of using lifts, or elevators as our US based clientele prefer to refer to them. She further wondered why men pretend to be so macho.  After all, she argued, things have moved on considerably ‘evolutionary-wise’ […]

Target-Weight Tyrants

Commy has been listening to friends discussing the waning of resolve that inevitably follows the start of any new diet. Why does it all start so hopefully, they wondered?  After all, armed with the latest dieting tome, an unflinching attitude to booze and chocolate and a new-found evangelical spirit, shouldn’t it be inevitable that target-weights […]

The Body Bonus

Commy’s friends have been wondering why they never come up with money-making ideas, unlike the person who, no doubt, made millions ‘inventing’ and marketing the blindingly obvious neck-brace. Somewhat high-handedly, Commy felt obliged to point out that most of the time this had very little to do with true entrepreneurial spirit. Rather, it was more […]
