    I still wonder: twinkle!

    This keyboard is goig okers [there's an example]
  2. It means the "look of love" given by your father to your mother that says "come darling, let us away to your boudoir and spend the night in the throws of exquisite passion"...at this point images of trains going into tunnels and rockets taking off fill the screen.

    Nine months later out pops little Inky. :¬))

    Yes, Bauble. I know that now. Presumaly you were a bright and shiny little thing in your father's eye...[​IMG]
  4. sorry...I thought you were still wondering what it meant.

    I think I was the result of a power cut. :¬))

    I think my mother probably only ever responded twice to the twinkle in my father's eye - my sister was the result of the first time, and I was the result of the second time ;)
  6. Lol...I am an only child and I remember my Dad saying sex was a bit like sherry...."tried it once, didn't like it."

    I know that, Bauble. Please don't think I'm ungrateful!
    Powere cuts and occasional twinkle - I don't know. I think my father had more twinkles than offsprig.

    My Aspieness means that I can get confused by some idioms. 'The twinkle in dad's eye' was particularly difficult for me to comprehend because my birthdad had one glass eye- I used to try and see if it twinkled!

  10. As I was once informed I was the result of Christmas Eve in the officer's mess, I doubt there was much twinkling but loads of alcohol!

    It's a good job Bethannie wasn't told that, eh, Bethannie? What a revolting idea!

    In Scotland I'm told it's 'tilt in your father's kilt' ;-)

    Great! I'm shocked, of course.[​IMG]
  14. I've never heard of that. I like it!

    A tilt in your father's kilt is a bit different, being rather more, erm, to the point. But I used fondly to imagine that the twinkle in my father's eye referred to his pleasure at the thought of haing me.
