We're conducting an experiment, here at the Potty Laboratories. Husband is the subject, but he doesn't know it yet, and won't if;
a) I can keep my mouth shut - unlikely, but I'm giving it my best shot. Duct tape may be required. Or wine. Although the latter may have the opposite effect if I get the quantities wrong...
b) he doesn't ever get round to reading this post. This is highly possible as I don't as a rule carry stories from the FT, and am not featured on Top Gear.
The experiment is:
How long can Husband leave a 'set' of underwear (i.e. a pair of socks and one pair of boxer shorts) lying on the floor by our bed?
There is some clarification needed here, however. Does it count as just one 'set' if at the end of each day the previous evening's 'harvest' (for want of a better term) is picked up and put in the laundry basket (admittedly by the afore-mentioned Husband), only to be immediately replaced by the updated version from today?
I only ask because the cleaner is coming tomorrow. Which is of course where the experiment gets really interesting, because it then becomes an exercise in my self-control in not picking them up before she arrives...
