Re-use to polish your shoes, if needed. Nylons do a great job with shoe polish. Also who needs nylons any more. Rock your natural legs!

Pöd nylons: Great way to save onions, tie a knot between every onion and hang them in your cellar, somewhere cool.

Re: First World Problems

Just back from the relaxing Thai massage (no naughty stuff ). It was so powerful that all my muscles, joints and ligaments are beyond sore. Never underestimate power of tiny Thai hands at work.

I don't have that many shoes nor onions

Natural legs are good but..."a lady is never seen without stockings", plus it's getting nippy in the mornings.

I will turn to the opaque ones soon, those are more resistant.

FWP - world, please, make stockings more my size. Not just 3 sizes fit'em all.

Re: First World Problems

"FWP happens once a while when I realize that after a few hrs of work they don't fit."

With me it's when I shorten jeans and end up with one leg longer than the other, despite taking ages to measure, cut and pin up. Maybe I now have one leg shorter than the other in my 50s?

You would feel it before you see it.

I do. Definitely happpens and it is not a FWP. You can have your lower spine mis-alligned and it may shift your hip up.

Wear your bag on the other shoulder.

Re: First World Problems

There are people who reply in emoticons only.

Weird.

On our way back to stone-age (or further?)
Back to grunting and growling?

And how will the emoticons for grunting and growling look like when bothering "writing" an sms?

The goat milk molecule is similar to that of a human's and therefore better digested.

I don't want to think about human milk when gleefully eating apero, though. Rancid.
