Stretch is two-way

The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - UPFRONT -

Mrs O’Con­nor, by now you will have read your hus­band’s con­fes­sion re his mis­placed birth­day watch (May 16-17). For­tu­nately for Mike, he found it be­fore it of­fi­cially had to be de­clared lost. Tas­ma­nia’s weather at this time of the year would cer­tainly have been worse than your cold shoul­der. For Mike to have suc­cumbed to your com­plaints that the elas­tic in his un­der­daks had reached the point of no re­turn was in it­self com­mend­able. Like many men, he loved his old ones, but to be hon­est, regular hitch­ing soon be­comes an em­bar­rass­ing an­noy­ance, es­pe­cially in public. Don’t be too hard on Mike. He re­ally does love that watch. In fu­ture he prom­ises not to let a draw­er­ful of well-worn un­der­wear stretch the friend­ship. Only time will tell!

Ken John­ston, Rochedale South
