Shopping with MissM

MissM
Why are we in Milletts?

MrsM
I need a fleece top.

MissM
You can't be serious.

MrsM
Sorry...
I am going on the field trip to Spain
and I need sensible and practical clothing.

MissM
Don't stand so close
to that pink fleece with a zip.
You might be contaminated.

MrsM
Look...on the sale rail...
there is a special pair of trousers
with pockets on the legs.
How lucky is that?

MissM
You
are
betraying
the
sisterhood.

  2. Did you tell her her time will come or have you decided to let her rest in ignorance for a few years longer?

  3. A practical, sensible, humble sister is still a sister.

    Spain sounds exciting - especially with those extra pockets. Imagine all the goodies you can stash in there!

  6. I wear a lot of fleece when going to/coming back from gym.
    Am I still allowed to comment or will I be banned for good?

  15. There comes a time when comfort is the most important consideration when choosing clothes. I like Millets!

  16. Yes, why were you in a shop that the gifted shop-lady MissM clearly despises? From what we know of her, she could have kitted you out very nattily and in a far less embarrassing way..... no pink zipped fleeces.

    On the other hand, if it's Geography, it just doesn't matter, does it.....
