    Getting one's rocks off.

    The title? Have no idea what it means. Over heard some young person say it at the local shopping mall, and noticed how all his friends sniggered in response. I thought it must be funny and so I thought I would use it! Mind you, they did look a bit like unwashed ferals. Have I done the wrong thing in so doing? .
    Anyway, these are some volcanic rocks I saw when I was totally lost at a dreadful spot called Ruffy, desperately dealing with savage natives, hunger, thirst, deprivation, and wounding sarcasm from a less than happy Mrs. ucci, trying to fight my way back to civilization, well Seymour anyway, and the safe comforts of home, knowing full well that my wife was never going to let me forget this particular directional transgression. Women can be so unforgiving in what many of us blokes consider to be nothing more than a trivial misadventure
    So, that's the 'story' behind this post. Who would have thought so much drama could be read into a pile of old rocks lying about in a paddock?

    Ken I can't help you with the title but I suspect it's something that you or I are unlikely to experience at our "time of life".

    Nice rocks!

    Cheers Dave

    What? Becoming an unwashed feral?

    Yes, well, er, um! Maybe it's a British term. But it does mean what I think Dave thinks it means.

    No. LOL Not in joining the great unwashed but for plagiarizing their youth feral talk!

    Looks like I do qualify.

    I think most people assume that definition #2 is the original derivation of the term. I always thought it was an American term. 'Rocks' is not really British. We don't mention it.

    If you are 40+ (like me) then Urban dictionary is an absolute must.

    Oh well. It must just be the preserve of the un-reconstructed west of Scotland male. We always did know how to behave with grace and aplomb.
