Mr. Waffle has an Italian colleague who has given us loads of beautiful hand me down clothes for the boys. They arrive in big bags in pristine condition, perfectly ironed. We got another delivery during the week.
Mr. Waffle: Why are they so much nicer than all of the clothes we buy them?
Me: Because they’re really, really expensive and beautifully made.
Him: It’s as though she’s handing me a bag with €500 in it.
Me: Well, not really, I mean she’s not planning to have any more children so it’s nice for her to give them away to someone who appreciates them. I’d like to do that.
Him: Well then why is our basement full of clothes our children have outgrown?
