Many thanks to Jenny for pointing out the thing that I was missing with the god awful rise in “onesies”, it’s not because the world has gone mad or because some modern foodstuff is causing mental regression. The reason that I keep seeing adults wearing the bloody things is much simpler, they can’t get them off! This is so obvious when I think about it, after all that’s one of the advantages that they have for babies, they can’t undress themselves, so the same must be true for these poor unfortunate adults. Much like a cat stuck up a tree or a child with its head in railings these adults have crawled into the “onesie” and are stuck, they need our help not our derision.
Never one to mock the afflicted I have now altered my attitude to these poor unfortunates and in future when I see them I will respond more appropriately, I intend to treat them much as a small child so will wrestle them to the floor for convenience and then attack the fasteners. It will be harder to control their struggling limbs as they are larger but my memory tells me that one arm and one leg at a time is the way forward and always make sure the head is supported. Imagine the joy on their faces when, rather than laughing at their misery, I actually help them and release them from their shackles, I shall be held up as a saviour. If you want to share in the gratitude and adulation then just remember next time you see a “onesie” on an adult set them free, together we can save them all.
The great weather entrapment is going full swing on the coast today with probably the largest flakes of snow I have ever seen gently drifting onto the ice cream signs. If it keeps up we could have tourism by default because those that are here wont be able to get out.
Honourable mention to Elaine for yesterday, when faced with a young gay couple she took it all in her stride despite their youthful lack of self control and very public displays, only after a few hours did she think to ask one of the couple how her boyfriend was. It was a sight to behold as she was slowly walked through the storyline of breaking up, changing paths and making up, the woman is a legend so much so that I am going to buy her some peppermint shoes on account of the amount of time that they spend in her mouth!
