London - Parliament Hill - April 2010 - The Quandary

Alright I know she is a very pretty woman wearing a short skirt and that is probably why I took this snap but I have posted it to illustrate a story I once heard and wondered if you would like to comment upon it.

The question is 'Who have the longest lunches?' to which the usual answer is businessmen. This is not the correct answer. Apparently it is 'Three women' any 3 women. The reason for this is that each is afraid to leave first as they know that the other two will talk about them for the next half hour.

I myself stand with Oscar Wilde in believing that there is only one thing worse than being talked about and that is Not being talked about but this is not true of women apparently.

I use this picture to illustrate the point because the young woman on the right looks as if she is waiting for her friend to get 5 yards further away before commencing the conversation.

Yes I do love her profile and her nose and the ra-ra skirt takes me back to some very happy memories far too long ago for comfort.

Let me know what you think.
