A somewhat loaded question was again raised at that veritable institution of scandal – the morning tea break – this morning when the issue arose of ” Who would you most like to (insert appropriate verb here) … ”
Of course, there were a few – both women and men – who guffawed about who they would or wouldn’t bring to a desert island and ahem … “talk to” and other’s topics ranged from people they’d like to see, to places they’d like to go and in our case, people they’d like to play golf with …
All the greats were mentioned … Palmer, Nicklaus, Ballesteros, Woods etc. as was the venue for your favourite mythical four ball … How about You, Woods, Nicklaus and Seve ? At St.Andrew’s ? Wow ! For the record, if I could choose, as mentioned yesterday, Team Twat would take on Tiger Woods and my cousin Aidan (!) in a fourball skins (matchplay on the side) game for, ooh let’s say, $2000 a hole ? Just to play with Tiger and for the 3 of us cousins to stand on a tee and have him tee off with us would be reward enough to forego the dazzling prospect of just myself and another 3 famous golfers ! Awww shucks !
So then the smart arse at the end of the table said “One night of screaming passion with Angelina Jolie or a round of golf at Augusta ?” No prizes for guessing what came out on top … and it wasn’t Mrs. Pitt !
