What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

    Yesterday in the morning I listenend to a radio phone call conversation between a customer and a sales assistant. The customer complained that the `After Shave`. he had just used is so burning - he used it at the other side of his body. The woman on the phone was explaining that `After`is English and not the ass-hole for German.
    It was a telephone joke.

    Oh dear! Painful just thinking about it @Hermine! :D

    I hope you enjoyed the pizza topping session @Hermine.

    I hope you didn't put any aftershave on your pizza @Hermine!

    @Lynne - yes very much. It was great in very informative.
    @Marianne - no! Thanks to Lynne my English is that good that I know where aftershave should be used.

    I'm very glad @Hermine. I can't imagine how awful aftershave flavoured pizza topping would be! Myself, I prefer olives and plenty of cheese.

    I like tuna as a topping. In that session Lynne was dressed in a slice of pizza.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 25,762 mod
    How did she look @Hermine? I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone ever dressed like a pizza before.

    @Marianne, she was pretty tiny, the shape of a sliece with two sticks of legs. Lynne likes to dress up, recently at Halloween she was the blond smurf girl.

    May i know what is the meaning of "aftershave". Can anybody answered me.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,009 mod
    Hi @Badariah‌, it is easy to express. Men use this after shaving their face. You can get that in different kinds; liquid, cream, spray - I am not sure.

    Thank you, Hermine.

    Pitralon was one of the first to get on market here.

    I haven't heard of that one @Hermine. In the UK Old Spice was very popular, and Brut. Nowadays young men use deodorants like Lynx instead (sometimes a bit too much).
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 25,762 mod
    I was trying to remember the name of popular brands. Brut is the one you 'splash it on all over,' isn't it @Lynne?
