Cheaters always get caught

A bloke in the pub told me that his wife had found out that he had been cheating on her when she found the letters that he had been hiding, Now she won’t play Scrabble with him any more.

Re: Grammar in: "go to school" vs "go to the school"

I can tell you why I took my neighbour to hospital rather than the hospital. We have about six hospitals around here so referring to "the hospital" would be daft.

Who could see that coming?

I went to buy a shirt today. There was a bloke in front of me looking to get a new jacket. The assistant got one from the rack and offered it to him. The bloke said that it wouldn’t fit and the assistant protested that he hadn’t even tried it on. The bloke told him, “I am a psychic. That jacket is t...

Re: to pay and watch

They are a bit clumsy.
We normally have to pay to see these stand-ups; but now we are meeting some of our favourites in person.

Notice the UK spelling of "favourites".

The Swansea Valley is a classic glaciated U-Shaped valley, so the theory you suggest may well be the answer.
