It’s not what you think.
What are you thinking?
Between sitting down and finishing our mains, I’d brought my family over the dark side (we have cookies!) and got them hooked on the idea of taking part in the Mongol Rally. Of course though, we’d be needing a name and Team Darnley just sounds a bit tame, don’t you think?
We were still sat at the lunch table finishing off Easter Lunch when Laura suddenly burst out laughing and went rather red. She’d thought of a name but could barely stop laughing long enough to tell us what it was. She calmed herself down just enough to whisper the name she’d thought of:
Two girls One car.
We were off, both howling with laughter. Mum, Dad and Granny were all sat at the table looking equally confused.
“Two girls one car?” They all looked at each other, then back at us as if searching for some clue as to what had caused Laura and I to dissolve into a heap of giggles on the other side of the table.
Then Mum started laughing.
Instantly Laura and I stopped laughing.
How on earth could Mum possibly know what it was referencing…we looked at each other, perturbed.
“Two girls, one car! One car sounds like wanker!” Mum thought it was hilarious.
Oh dear. If there was ever a facepalm moment…
Given that we’ll be needing sponsorship (lots of sponsorship) for this adventure and that we’ll be raising money for charity perhaps we’ll be steering clear of Laura’s “Two Girls One Car” idea…it would definitely attract a lot of attention though that’s for sure.
In the meantime, I think we’ll be sticking with “Team Darnley”
