Nothing more delicious than overheard comment about someone you know.

BURLINGTON, ON  June 2, 2012  There is something absolutely delicious about over hearing a conversation others are having about someone you know.  Our parents told us it wasn’t polite to listen in and perhaps it isn’t polite – but we listen in nevertheless.  And we can’t wait to pass on what we heard.

Our source for what follows is impeccable – we would trust our first born with this man.   He was sitting in the lobby of a public building – attending a by invitation only event.

Two ladies of a certain age were seated nearby and noticed Burlington’s MPP Jane McKenna walk into the space and one said to the other:

Oh, it’s going to be one of those events – Marvelous Mike will be here soon too.

To which the second lady replied:

Where have I heard that – the Marvelous Mike thing?

The first lady explains – It’s on that web site, the one done by the guy with the white hair.

Yes, said the second lady.  I don’t understand the thing.  What does he mean by cheeky and irrelevant.

The first lady corrects her friend and says – he says : cheeky and irreverent.

Oh responds the second lady of a certain age.

And continue with

“Why does he always talk about the kimono having to be open?”

The first responds with:

I think he must have had a bad experience in a Japanese brothel.


Ms  McKenna stayed at the by invitation only event.

Marvelous Mike was in Ottawa doing the nation’s business.

Pepper Parr has never been to Japan

    Cheap shots at our elected Official’s are just that. I find both of these people that were elected through a democratic process are very helpful and easily contacted.
