A couple of questions I want to get off my chest ... but first, two boatyish ones to get the ball rolling.
Why, oh why...
1. Do people go to their boat for the weekend and then spend all the time sitting inside it watching sport on the TV?
2. Semi trads.
Now for the ones I really want to know:
3. Why, when you wash up a colander, do you turn it upside down to drain? (Go on, you do, don't you.)
4. Why do people (OK, women, all the ones I've seen) put their make up on on the train? Wouldn't it be easier just to get up ten minutes earlier? I find this truly inexplicable because it's such an intimate thing; surely the whole point of make up (not something with which I've been very well acquainted since about 1983) is to put on a face for the world to see, a point rather undermined by letting the world see you do it. It always looks such a struggle too, juggling compacts and mirrors and brushes out of your handbag - wouldn't it be so much easier at a nice, big, well lit dressing table; a piece of furniture that also has the inestimable advantage of not rocking about and going over points just as you're delicately outlining your lips, or whatever it is you do.
Also, I should think that applying mascara while on the tube is a guaranteed way of losing an eye sooner rather than later.
