BSL Glossary - Crowded Cottage

Wife - example

I went along to a party which was really crowded, full of people. As I was mingling I came across this woman who never stopped talking. I managed to avoid her and this man asked me what was wrong. "See that woman over there, I cant stand her. She is always talking all the time." "Oh her? Well actually thatís my wife." I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me!í
