    Lewd, come on, you can't tantalise us like that and then leave us wondering, you've got to either spill the beans or offer a prize for the most original reply.
    My guess is, that you were in the bed department of Harrods, "testing the bounce" of a super king size waterbed (including vibro massage feature) with your partner.
    Edu and Silva walk in holding hands and disguised as characters from "La Cages aux Folles" (a gay comedy).
    Edu says in a high pitched lisping voice "Berto dahling, is'nt that just divine"(pointing at a gross Loius XIV four poster) and would'nt it look absolutely fabulous in our lovenest. :shock:
