No, having a baby to wipe does not sound refreshing.
It's refreshing for the wipee.

There are no summer bras and winter bras, like summer tires and winter tires
Just go bra-less (or top-less).

HTH!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

It’s much cooler today

That’s it. Other FWP are only my low order concerns.

Depends! If they got radiated by an organic compound then maybe.
Fruit is irradiated only with ionizing radiation (gamma rays, x-rays or electron beans), not with compunds.

Thank you for hoping that your advice would help.

I will think about it.

I can't stand the smell. And added chemicals in it.

But I guess I can see why people use them, yeah. Thinking of which, shower time. Again.

On a train, when the AC doesn't work, you can't open the Windows to cool down. Bras, however, usually have a fastener which can be neatly unfastened to open up and let the air in.

After a small culinary mishap I found it necessary to wash avocado out of the tread of my Birkenstocks.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My husband went to London last weekend and picked up a head cold which has been a stonker since yesterday. Unfortunately he's now milking it for everything and behaving like a pathetic whiney 4 year old. Apparently I didn't by the right brand of blackcurrant and glycerine pastilles from Migros.

Sadly you have failed to recognise that a head cold for most men is a near death experience.

Give him space to fight the virus; maybe go to a disco?
