Stretch is two-way
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!
