I was left to my own devices for about 15 minutes in Prahran while R went about an errand. I went to Coles supermarket to get something.
In a very gay and laconic gay drawl one young staff member remarked to another very obviously gay staff member,
"I need a red christmas tee shirt...........doesn't matter.........don't worry about it."
The other replied,
"Tony, your lack of a red christmas tee shirt is the least of your problems."
It amused me, but not as much as the apparent difference between male and female feet. I went to a place that used to be TSL, The Stock Liquidator. It has changed its name and is now a Bond's shop. TSL used to sell mostly Bonds clothing. Just what I need, a pack of three socks, the same black socks with a little colour at the toes I have bought there before. But wait, they are women's socks, so the label said. Well, I can't be buying women's socks.
There are some pretty obvious physical differences between men and women, but I would have thought that the feet were much the same. I didn't buy the socks as they were marked with woman foot sizes and I don't know my equivalent.
