078. Men Are Useless At Advice

In response to yesterday’s heartfelt request for advice on how I could convince MrsDavy to stamp Ned’s passport “Chicago” my dear readers came up with:

  • subterfuge
  • an open and honest conversation
  • seek forgiveness not permission
  • the old ‘ask for more and settle for less’ bait and switch, and
  • a tax dodge

Come on people: this is like the worst heist movie ever.  It’s worse than Ocean’s Twelve, and way worse than Entrapment which at least had Catherine Zeta Jones in it.

Luckily, we have the Friday night fush and chup run for inspiration. While I’m waiting for the greasies, I’m being totally multitasking by following the Waikato vs Canterbury match on The Twitter. And LittleDavyTwo looks at me with her Whatevs face, and says:

Congratulations Dad. You’re officially a teenage girl.

Bingo! That right there is The Heist lightbulb moment.

  • Teenage girl
  • Tax dodge
  • Chicago – blues capital of the world
  • Subterfuge
  • Forgiveness not permission

Clearly what I need to do is follow David Correos’s lead and create my very own Miley Cyrus tribute act, and take it to the good folk of the Chicago South Side. Money in the bank.

About Ned Davy

By hokey, the big fella’s tipped into his 50s. A rangy loose forward in his prime, good with the ball in hand, but rarely up with the play any more.

  1. Mike says:

    But Ned, how could a two week holiday abroad, culminating in watching the world’s greatest rugby team take on the might of USA Rugby be better than two hours (sorry, one hour and fifty-nine minutes) of pain on the streets of Auckland?

    • Ned Davy says:

      Good point Mike. I suggest that you do the 1:59 of pain on the streets of Auckland, I’ll do the two weeks in Chicago, and we’ll compare notes afterwards. Deal?

Go on. Have your say.
