Would you believe that on the very day that TR spotted his first Christmas tree of 2013 sparkling away in the top floor window of a local high-rise that I received a Christmas present from 2012!
Let me explain …
As I’ve mentioned previously on these pages I’d never win an audition for one of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs, (I would however make an excellent Prince Charming, but that of course is just my opinion)
No, I’m much too tall for that and happily leave those roles to shall we say the vertically challenged.
Unfortunately there are no ‘specialty clothing shops’ down here and I’m sort of restricted to buying clothing on a browse for an hour and hope that it’s long enough basis, actually, I gave up on that some time ago, I now no longer bother. With an outside led of 48″ and inside of 36″ I’m sure that some of you here appreciate the problem.
Imagine my delight then, when on Christmas day 2012 I received a brand new pair of denims purchased from Big’n Tall Johannesburg and brought down by Ouma who lives up in the big smoke and spends every Christmas with us.
Well then, my delight was short lived, there was undoubtedly sufficient length to accommodate me but I couldn’t get them on! The manufacturers had obviously erred on their labeling of the waist size, so back they went and I thought no more of it.
Guess who came to visit on Thursday?
Guess what she brought?
Now to get them taken up or perhaps a turn-up,
Merry Christmas everyone 🙂
