The conversation turned towards the programs that the kids watched when they were little. We felt that, at the time we knew every episode of "Teletubbies", "Thomas the Tank Engine" and "Bob the Builder" off by heart.. Therefore it was highly amusing when Hubs asked me, "for a million dollars ....what were the names of all of the characters in Bob the Builder?" I managed Bob and Wendy and Spud the Scarecrow and was feeling really chuffed with my efforts thus far when hubs said, "what about the cat?" I couldn't remember its name and we all started singing "Bob the Builder" at the tops of our voices to try and jog our memories.
"I have it! The cat's name is Pilchard!" I yelled (one million wasn't going to slip through my finger tips that easily).
Somehow we managed to get through all of the characters except for the cement mixer - nobody could remember the name at all.
I'm embarrassed to say that I went and looked it up on the Internet. I want to be able to go to bed and rest easy in the knowledge that I finally KNOW.
The cement mixer's name was Dizzy.
Look out Eddie McGuire...I'm coming!
