Once when my youngest was still in junior school, i was walking down the playground after visiting the school for some mundane reason . As i approached the gate and ambled towards the direction of the car with which my hubby was waiting in i noticed a huge white painted sign on the playground floor just before the gates.
The upper right of the letter T was missing but i stood for a while looking at the white painted sign musing that the school must have upped their campaign to add to school funds by servicing cars.
Then my musing wondered to whether they were invloving the children into the scheme as a motorworkshop lesson.
Then my confusion magnified when it dawned on me that the school was being very irresponsible by offering to MOT parents cars in an enviroment where lots of small children were in harms way, after all with MOTs come big scary tools that can injure a small child not to mention the cars coming in and out of school during the day.
So as i stood there mulling it all over i decided that after all, this was not such an ingenious plan to swell the school coffers but more a very silly and ill thought out plan and it was my duty to complain to the school about its irresponsibility towards its young charges placing them in such danger just for a bit more money to buy sports equipment, i mean whats wrong with saving Tesco stamps!?
So i walked out of the school playground to tell my hubby the shocking discovery.
As i approached our car i took one more look back at the white painted sign with the slightly deformed T in MOTS.
Seeing upside down to my previous viewpoint.
Then it hit me.
The school wasnt doing MOTS i was looking at it upside down it simply said,- SLOW, and i was very!

That reminds me...
of a woman I used to work with who told me a story. She'd been sitting at home with her mum who was reading the local paper and happened to be casting an eye over the lonely hearts page.
"What does bicurious mean?"
"It's bi-curious, Mum."
She then had to explain what it meant to her mum.
