I always keep two used tea bags in the fridge to put on my eyes in the morning, as they have an annoying habit of 'puffing up' over night. The reason I mention this, is, my lovely partner came into the room this morning (after a previous night of scoffing 'everything' in the house) cradling his tummy and looking thoroughly dejected.
"Look!" he announced, turning side on.
The word pregnant flashed across my mind, but I held my tongue and smiled sympathetically.
"It's not that bad."
He sighed and shuffled in front of the mirror, tucking his shirt in underneath the offending tummy.
"What on earth am I going to do about it?" he groaned, looking me straight in the eye, genuinely awaiting an answer.
Well you could start by not eating a weeks worth of food in one sitting, I thought to myself, but again, I said nothing ... until the ideal remedy sprang to mind.
"Stay there, I've got just the thing!"
I rushed into the kitchen to the fridge, and came back with one of my tea bags.
"Pop this on it, it always does the trick on my eyes!"
Well, for some reason he didn't seem to find it quite as amusing as I did, but the image of him laying on the sofa with a tiny tea bag perched on the top of his tummy waiting for it to go down has been making me titter all morning!
