Okay I get tired of playing the dip-spouse all the time. Being the polished, perfect, polite, politically correct person - damn almost alliterated there didn't I? - 24 hours a day is tiring. Every so often I have to untighten the cummerbund - well actually I haven't worn a tuxedo since I arrived - and be rude, crude and if I had the nerve tattooed.
All that to introduce a joke that I received today from my friend Bev in Kabul - yes they joke in Kabul!
Sorry I'll just do up that cummerbund again.
