Re: The First World Problem Thread

Silk handkerchiefs - useless. Found one the other day in our household... Not practical at all. So why anyone would make and sell them? Or.. Buy them??? They are only good for dropping from a horse-drawn carriage awash in some perfume in the 19th century...
(Yes, there will be an interrogation of the OH re: what the heck???)

Trying to explain to toddlers that although the sun is shining and the sky is blue, more than 10 minutes outside WILL turn them into human Popsicles.

Why explain? Just dress them up and send them out to play - they'll get the message pretty quickly.

You do realise that today is Tuesday? And while it might warm up some, it's still going to be below freezing here with some snow forecast. Not due to get above freezing until late on Saturday.
