Apology.

“I sincerely apologise and will lick your wounds clean if you let me”, is what I overheard in a café close to the university late this morning. The apologiser was about twenty years old as was the girl he felt he had offended. He had the beginnings of a beard, she didn’t. She found his apology inadequate and far from amusing. I found it unacceptable too and somewhat nauseating. It put me off my Earl Grey tea and German biscuit. I suspect that she was just making him work for it and that by the end of the day all would be forgiven.

As apologies go it conjures up one or two pretty gross images. "He had the beginnings of a beard, she didn’t." Bravo sir! I will be laughing at that all day.

@wordazza I'm rather partial to ladies with no beards myself.

@xFiacre Also my preferred option. But not necessarily a deal breaker!!!

I would hope that by the end of the day that this female might has found herself a better individual to hang out. Perhaps one who could turn a phrase a little better.

I always find this apology gross and I cannot believe that someone could address such an apology.

It sounds a pretty gross apology to me. Who wants their wounds licked?

@judyev especially when the licker is the one who inflicted the wounds. I really must start keeping more savoury company!

@xFiacre I would have had to hide my face in a paper or something. I can never seem to keep my features straight when I'm offended/grossed out/whatever. My lip would have curling like nobody's business.

@JudyEv I share that inability to keep a straight face. I wear a continual smirk and my wife is always asking me what's so funny.

That is a gross apology. He should have said sorry instead.

That was a strange apology. I wonder what he had done that he had to apologize for, but he probably made it worse with those words.
