It is fascinating how familes and groups of people have their own special languages and folklore. Nicknames for instance, stick for a lifetime. We have a new one in our house. It has been under the sea. So items which have survived take on a mistique of their own. We have just finished drinking a bottle of pink grapefruit squash that survived the 52hrs onslaught of the sea. And some of the crockery has never been so clean.
I do wish the boat insurance would get settled though.
