Loud ladies

The other day Mrs H and I visited a cafe where six elderly ladies were seated round a table. They were amicably chatting away over tea and cakes but the level of noise they managed to create was astounding. I couldn’t do it.

Mrs H who notices these things said they kept raising their voices as they tried to talk over each other. All entirely amicable but crikey - the noise.

Shrill too?

It's rather like singing in the bath, the hard surfaces seem to give one a quality (and in this case, a decibel quantity), which makes one feel better than they really are!

In your cafe, they were certainly on recreational chemicals and pints of Old Sheps 'Boston Tea Party' - 8.9% abv!

James - shrill enough to endanger glassware.

Scrobs - you could be right about the Old Sheps 'Boston Tea Party' - 8.9% abv. I wondered why the tea had a head on it.
