Gullible’s travels

This morning my 15 year old reminded me that my birthday was coming up in a few days. I explained to her that my birthday had been postponed by Prime Minister, Tony Blair, as he did not want anyone else in the country to share a birthday with him. She was horrified that someone would be so egotistical.

Did you know that gullible is the only common English word not in the Shorter Oxford Dictionary?

  1. Did you know that gullible is the only common English word not in the Shorter Oxford Dictionary?

    Nice! I’d got to the pont of standing up to go fetch it!

  2. It’s interesting how many people share birthdays with recent world leaders. For example, I share a birthday with Bill Clinton and my brother with Pierre Trudeau. Both of which were more arrogant than Blair. 😉

  3. I can understand sharing a birthday with Bill Clinton – but why share your brother with Trudeau ???? 😀

  4. I guess all our money wasn’t enough for Trudeau, he wanted all first borns as well. ;)–>
