3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With Missus off work for Eid-Al-Adha, my attention will be diverted to some extent in meeting her needs, and with Son's college unaffected, this will include in the groin department as she takes advantage of his absence. Though her libido is high, she has not reached nymphomaniac level, so I suspect one little blue tablet will suffice, as one thunderous climax usually keeps her happy for a day. Son has no tutorials on Tuesday in any case so we are only talking a couple of extra performances in total.
Now familiar with their potency and the best timing to take them, my little blue friends mean performance on demand is guaranteed, so I can now relax on that score, especially since the recently-released generic form is very affordable. Marital harmony, and indeed bliss, is secured for the moment.
Of greater concern is the vast quantities of cash required to support Son's attempted entry into a conservatoire. The Scottish Conservatoire audition has proved particularly expensive - £200 and 48 hours of my time for a gamble that rests on around five minutes for Son to impress the panel. He of course is feeling the pressure, but I have reassured him that there will be no fallout from his parents in the event of failure.
Nevertheless, with his 18th birthday also coming up, we expect to need to borrow at least £500. We of course have no hesitation in doing this - indeed it was me who has instigated it all, and even in the event of his total failure, I would have no regrets. In fact I will be there to pick him back up off the floor in that event. In return he gives me everything I ever wanted from my children - gratitude, appreciation and respect. For that reason I will support him to my last breath.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Michael McIntyre - Fir and Mná
The brains of adult men are about 10% larger in total size than the
brains of women. This is because men generally have a larger stature and more
muscle mass than women, so their brains require more neurons to control it all.
