Well Hello

I got told a joke the other day that utterly relies on my knowledge of a song that apparently everyone has heard. Everyone, it would seem, except me – and so the joke raises a faint smile because I can work it out, but not the giggles that it seems to evoke in Lady M.

There are times when I’m proud of my ability to refuse to join in when culturally exciting things are announced. My awkward sod mode joins with my bloody mindedness to dig in my heels and deliberately not make any moves to remedy the situation.

I will now share the joke with you so that you too can gauge your disengagement from pop culture moments:

Q: Why did Adele cross the road?
A: To say Hello from the other side.

Dearie, dearie me…
