Do what Craig Ferguson does; offer her a choice, awkward pause or mouth organ

I can play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on a 8-tone toy harmonica that I borrow from our son. I can do parts of The Emperor March from Star Wars and also Catch a Falling Star by Perry Como, too.

I could record it for you and send you an mp3 if you want.

Sure ... but make it good. My wife expects high quality recordings.

replace "Harmonica Music" with "Sex". You will not need any suggestions ( I hope).

You do know the difference between bagpipes and onions, don't you?









People cry when they chop up onions. (As told to me by my Scottish grandfather.)

Great suggestions!

Sixty Fiver, as far as my wife is concerned, all of your suggestions came directly from me. If she knew the truth, I wouldn't stand a chance
