Putting on the vanities

A visitor, known to me, is being given the Cook's Tour of the premises...

"And what do you do?" she asked me.

"Essentially, I'm just here as eye candy," I explained, truthfully.

"Don't kid yourself sugarbutty," muttered Sybil, unkindly.

Hmmmm, sugarbutty, eh? I think I like it, yes, I'm sure do.

At a well known Northern University, I was known as the Dept's Token Male. Which would have been funny were it not true....so much for equality!

Gadjo: I've written it down for future use.

Affer: I know whereof you speak: except for my very first job I've always been in a very small minority.

Pat: (-:

If you are not just there as eye-candy then - you must be useful aswell.
Sugarbutty does sound very cross North-American and North-England. Sounds worthy of a bite in either region
