Chimbley Sweeps [Jun. 30th, 2004|01:23 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
I was listening to You and Yours in the car earlier, and they had a chimney sweep on. Man, it'd be ace to be a chimney sweep wouldn't it? When you were at parties and people asked you what you did they'd go "Cool! A chimney sweep!" instead of going "Uhuh" when you say you're a computer programmer.

You can pretend you are a chimney sweep thus saving yourself a lifetime of getting sooty. Nowadays apparently they don't send small cockney children up chimneys which is a bit of a swizz if you ask me.

Once upon a time when I could still BA to go to clubs I used to pretend I was 'old bill' or inland revenue when speaking to unattractive men.

I used to pretend I was a lesbian, but they tended to just ask if they could watch. So then I changed it to transexual and they bothered me no more.

Of course I realise that has nothing to do with pretending to do another job, but what the doodah.

Yes, but then you'd also have to dance around singing "Chim Chiminy Chim Chiminy Chim Chim Chereeeeeeee" and affecting a fake cockerney accent. However, it would be less easy for people to ask you to take a quick look at the chimney and sort it out than it is for computers, so maybe it would balance out.
