The Shy Welsh Village Lad
He talked to his friend in the bar. "Jones", he said, "a beautiful girl lives next door to me, but I don't know how to chat girls up, I've never done it before".
Jones said, "All you have to do is say to her 'good morning miss. I's a beautiful day isn't it? What beautiful flowers in your garden. That will get the conversation going".
Elwyn practiced this in front of a mirror for a few days. Then one night at the local pub he saw her. Elwyn stood near the bar trying to pluck up the courage to go and talk to her. He was nearly ready when the girl got up and went to the washroom.
This is it, thought Elwyn, its now or never. So he stood outside the washroom and waited. She was ever such a long time that poor Elwyn was starting to lose his nerve. He was just about to walk away when the girl came out. There she was, right in front of him looking beautiful.
Elwyn said, "Erm, erm g-good evening, miss".
She said, "Good evening".
He continued, "It's a b-beautiful day isn't it"?
"Yes", she said, "it is a splendid day".
Encouraged he went on. "I'm your neighbor, and I must tell you you have a lovely garden".
She smiled, "Thank you. I think so, too".
Stuck for something else to talk about, Elwyn stammered, "Erm, erm, err, ah, you've just had a shit, have you"?
