Those Lovely Paramedics

Posted in Nothing Really with tags , , , , on 18 September, 2008 by Ally

My friend Rebecca just told me a delightful little story, about an elderly relative and a wonderful malapropism she made.

I love my 94 year old Great Auntie Molly very much. She wrote a letter back to me today. I presumed when she kept saying how much she was enjoying watching “those lovely Paramedics” that firstly, she was referring to the TV, and that it was some sort of reality show about hospitals etc. It was only when she later brought them up again that it all became clear:

“And now they’re giving out medals to all the lovely Paramedics.”

Good ol’ Auntie Molly!
