|Packet of briefs|
I have twenty-five pairs of underpants. I didn’t think I’d ever have to tell anyone that, but then I got chatting to a couple from my children’s kindergarten and they wanted to know how I managed to get away with doing just two loads of laundry a week. The husband, in particular, found my response a revelation - he’d thought seven pairs per person was some sort of legal limit. Of course, I didn’t tell them that I bought my underpants from op shops, so I didn’t have to explain that packets of unused underpants weren’t actually all that hard to find.
