FOWC with Fandango — Highfalutin


Highfalutin is one of those words you’ve heard, but not sure of the meaning.
I looked it up, and have the perfect example.

We took the inlaws out for lunch, knowing a lovely little cafe where they served the best breakfast ever for a fiver.
MIL refused to cross the threshold wanting a restaurant with fancy china and silverware.
We ended up on the quay in a fish and chip shop restaurant, with split plastic tablecloths, chipped mugs, unmatched cutlery, no napkins and hot food cooked to order.
Three of us enjoyed our meal, the fourth did nothing but moan.
You can read about the rest of that day here


The definition of highfalutin is arrogant or pompous.

Source: Cambridge dictionary:
trying to seem very important or serious without having a good reason for doing so; pretentious.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It is the sacred duty of MILs to be a pain in the neck!
