Because he wants to have a bath and I took the towels from the bathroom this morning, for a wash.

Yes, I realise I always usually replace the old towels with fresh ones straight away, but just this once I didn't. (Shock horror)

He knows where the airing cupboard is, and he knows the towels live in there. "Should I take this one off the line?" Err, please yerself? But dont frighten the neighbours!

Luckily we are reasonably private. hmm

Blimey Gonegirl .shockblush

Thank goodness you’re “reasonably private” the poor neighbours would’ve had a heart failure .

Heh heh Gonegirl grin

You see, he has the body confidence to do that. smile

Wish I had!
My bare body exposed for any length of time would certainly put OH off his food, scare the cat and probably cause the garden plants to wilt and die! wink

Oh gonegirl I needed a laugh while thanking my lucky stars it wasn't Mr C who has never thought much about other peoples sensibilities. I don't dare tell him what I'm laughing at or he just might think what a good idea. grin.

We knew someone who was a keen gardener and always worked outside in the nude weather permitting. I tried to keep the image out of my head.

Send him round, I need something to hang my clothes line on smile

Remins me of the eveing my Oh decided to decorate the bathroom and because it was so hot he did it nude...I was surpised when a neighbour knocked the door and asked me to let him know he should maybe shut the window .Everone who drove up the street could clearly see him..oops.Well he was very young in 1976 and it was a very hot summer .

With luck, he might grow up one of these days and stop behaving like a spoiled brat.

Callistemon Sat 03-Aug-19 20:08:24


Why is wandering around in the nude in a private garden behaving like a spoilt brat?

It was very funny.

Gonegirl Sat 03-Aug-19 20:09:20

Great sense of humour you've got there RosieLeah, grin

Callistemon Sat 03-Aug-19 20:11:47

He was just making a point

If I don't put the towels out then DH always takes the wrong ones out of the airing cupboard.

Although - is there such a thing as a 'wrong towel'?

I hope this thread isn't going to bring back my recurring nightmare of calmly walking through M&S to buy a prawn cocktail.

Minniemoo Sat 03-Aug-19 20:16:17

Calmly walking through M&S naked I should have said. I always ruin punchlines and stories by missing out that one important word.

RosieLeah Sat 03-Aug-19 20:17:25

Does everything have to be 'just so' in his world?

Gonegirl Sat 03-Aug-19 20:20:26

Minimoo I guessed it. We all did. grin

Gonegirl Sat 03-Aug-19 20:21:25

God no RosieLeah! I wouldn't be in his world if that was the case. grin

MissAdventure Sat 03-Aug-19 20:23:34

Have you got the hump, Rosie?
