DD: What are you doing tomorrow?
Me: Checking someone's thesis.
DD: Their feaces?
Me: No, THESIS. Theses is plural.
DD: Poo is plural?
Me: Eh? Well yes, poo is plural, you could say "A bit of poo, or..."
DD: You're checking someone's poo?
<<The penny drops>>
Me: No. who do you think I am, Gillian McKeith?

Brilliant. She's going to be furious you posted though grin

She's a star. She told me a while back that her friend was taking part in a medieval jousting show - she was going to be the damson in distress smile

Now there is a challenging costume request grin

As you were.

I wasn't sure and so I googled the spelling. Must've got the US version blush
