Dear Elderly Couple buying lightbulbs,
It made me happysad when Mr Elderly Couple cheerily announced
“Oooh it says these new lightbulbs last 10years, just think, we will probably never have to buy lightbulbs again!”
Mrs Elderly Couple you looked a combination of faintly amused yet groaning inwardly at your husbands sense of humour, and yet also clearly slightly terrified of your future demise as you simply said “yes dear”.
I do hope you both get to experience the joys of purchasing energy saving lightbulbs again (although top tip -your electricity provider often gives them out for free) but more importantly I hope Mr Elderly Couple keeps up his sense of humour and you and Mrs Elderly Couple remain such a lovely clearly happy couple and that when your time does come that you get to shuffle off this mortal coil and towards the light (the light that takes several minutes to warm up and reach full brightness) together at the same time, so one of you never misses the other, bad mortality jokes and all.
Lots of Love
P.S You are role models for me &LordC. I want someone to write about doing something like that in 40years or so.
