If you’re already in the hole, stop digging.

Unfortunately Mrs M lives in those foot-in-mouth-holes. And proved her residence once again last night…when someone says: “Yeah, don’t you know Mrs M, she’s Toby’s best friend…”

And Mrs M answers: “Oh no, we’re not best friends, we’re very very good friends.”

Pray tell..somebody…what on earth is the difference between best and very very good? Does it even matter at this stage of one’s life? Because Toby Hanks is in fact a FANTASTIC person and I adore her friendship very much. Without a doubt, best comes to mind.

I didn’t want to be so forward as to say, beste maatjies, if perhaps Toby had other best mates in mind and then think I was claiming to be her best buddy (because she is in fact about as close to me as my own mother in many respects), so I rather just stopped digging (after explaining about all the best mates-kinda-things Tobes has done for me, including putting up with me in an extremely melancholy mood in her flat and gooing the best (there’s that word again) surprise party ever!)

Just take the spade. Now.



  1. Hee, hee, hee, hee. You are so funny. Don’t worry about it skat – I know what you meant! You really didn’t need to give me the M&Ms to apologise.

  2. M&M-Mostly Mortified

  3. Ha, ha, ha. You have not lost your sense of humour amidst your business Mrs M!

  4. It’s all I have in trying to cope with it all me dear…all I have. Seriously, it just made me think about when I was a little younger and would say I don’t have best friends only a handful of people I am really really close to, perhaps not taking into account that the other person may have thought I was their best friend and me not wanting to attach labels to this whole best friend business.
    Put it this way, I am closer to you (in proximity and friendship) than anybody else.

  5. *Gnome folds her arms anrgily* And I thought you were MY best friend!
    *Kidding* (made you stress there for a second Mrs M…)
