She cast a calculated look over me. "You've GOT boobies," she informed me.
"No, I haven't got boobies, I've got pecs," I lied. "And anyway, I'm going to have a shower in a minute."
Again, there was a pause while she thought about this. "Okay, but you're not allowed to go outside."

But as blunt as this was, it wasn't the bluntest thing said today by members of our extended family - the last word must once again go to the wonderful Grandma Mac, the reigning Queen of Blunt, who was chatting with Tracey's sister, Belinda, this afternoon.
After a lengthy conversation, Belinda was bidding Grandma Mac farewell with the rather nice sentiment, "I can't wait to give you a big fat squeeze."
"Yes," said Grandma Mac accusingly, "you have put on a lot of weight since you've left Weight Watchers."
Look out, people, The Mac is back!
