Leaning on a 1920's Bentley in Edinburgh you might think I owned it. I was trying to impress a pretty Scottish lass standing close by.
She fell for it hook line and sinker but I quickly realised she knew more about Le Mans Bentleys than the Ayatollah about the Quran.
Humiliation stared me in the face. Panic was creeping in.
Thinking on the hoof I blurted: "I'm taking the salute at tonight's tattoo and must rush off to don my dress uniform for the parade. "Black Watch?" she asked "I adore men in kilts and sporrans - can I come too?"

    You have to watch out for the bluff...and especially bluster...which can whip up your kilt!

    Careful. If she discovers you're a fraud you'll be tossing your own caber tonight!
