|You would, wouldn't you?|
I ask this question, rather idly, because it is a Sunday morning and I have just watched the inevitable spectacle of a man trying to re-cover a duvet. I thoroughly recommend this as a hobby, by the way, the watching, obviously, not the doing. It would make a great TV show, get a series of celebrities to put new covers onto duvets, against the clock and to music... (hurries off to sell idea).
|Imagine this, without the woman but with a duvet... See what I mean? And this picture is from the Daily Mirror, who have also clearly seen the possibilities....|
I have tried to explain that it's quite simple. You turn the cover inside out, grab the corners of the duvet itself and then sort of roll the cover onto the duvet. It's like putting a coat onto a small child. I have even demonstrated on numerous occasions. Inside out, grab and roll... And then I stand back and watch a man turn it into a cross between
I don't really think that zips would help, of course. Unless the covers unzipped all the way round, like a sleeping bag...and, yes, I know, for every man that can't stuff a duvet cover there are seventeen women who can't either, and he can do things that I can't, like...um... well, I'm still not entirely sure what brake calipers are and I'm rubbish at paying bills on time. But, still - TV show in the making?
