Moyra Melons has a knack of under stating things, like many British people do, and it sometimes leads to crossed wires in conversation. Brits are often accused of this very thing the world over. In Moyra's case it is more exceptional because she is constantly transfixed on her ear rings - an indulgence that she enjoys.
Her husband does not mind this either because he always finds himself drifting off at a tangent when his beloved wife greets him with new ear rings. And being a Brit too, he is happy with polite under statement. Though sometimes, he thinks his wife might have an ear ring obsession - a small indulgence that he is happy to accommodate, seeing as he has his own obsession that often runs parallel with Moyra Melons' ear ring fixation.
The image of Moyra Melons above, is the exact sight that greeted her husband when he walked in from another days work. He was feeling tired and a little lack lustre as he went into the front room and saw Moyra on the sofa, obviously pleased with herself and new ear rings.
"Do you think this pair are eye catching?" she asked with a tantalising grin.
The sight of Moyra Melons hit her husband like 'WOOSH.' The cobwebs were whisked from his eyes in one mesmerising blink, he began to stutter, slightly lost for words.
"I- I think they are outstanding dear. Wonderful, first class, if I may say so."
Moyra flushed and her eyes widened with delight and surprise. "Well I thought they were a nice pair but I didn't expect you to be taken that much."
"Oh they're absolutely divine," he added, delicately slamming the door, like a devil may care caveman.
Well, I can leave the rest to the reader's imagination, but afterwards Moyra Melons was a tad confused when her husband said, "By the way darling, I like the new ear rings too."
