We have a comedian here in the UK called Michael McIntyre who I think is just amazingly funny. He pulls his material from real life which is why it is probably such side splitting material. One of my favourite stories is his rendition of " The MAN-drawer!"
You will no doubt know this drawer because EVERY household has one. Its the HOUSEHOLD MAINTENANCE drawer - the drawer that holds the spare light bulb for the lamp (that has actually been thrown away) and the AA batteries that you THINK are charged, the spare fuse for the power board (that was replaced with a new consumer unit last year), the international plug adaptor for Ouagadougou ... (? its the capital of Burkina Fasu) , the swiss army knife and endless spare headphones (that have lost one earpiece), a flash light, plasters and headache pills etc.. etc...We ALL have one of these drawers right? Its the MAN-drawer .. the drawer that in the event of emergency you could go to war with AND keep an attacking army at bay.
Well ... we have several of these drawers and they ALL reside in the dressing table I share with my hubby. So, you can imagine my face when said hubby announced he needed more space in this SHARED unit and suggested I get rid of some of my clothes.
"Oh look the Samaritans are collecting for charity on Tuesday ... why dont you have a clear out "
Yes, right ... I know what you are up to Mr P! (there are no flies on me you know!)
Well as it happened I was quite happy to accommodate this request as I had had it in mind to do a 'clear out' for a while .... and I did! Way too many bags were filled with the remnants of a life when I was smaller than I am today. Too many good clothes will be sitting on hangers in the charity shop because I got too fat BUT thats ok ... I am happy to move things on AND to a better place than residing in space that is the poor relation of the man-drawer. But a few of my nicer things are on EBAY as of this moment.
Mind you if I were to place it in my LADY- drawer it may not help defend a country against invasion but it could surely help decorate it!
