Thread Name: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
Subject: RE: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
It made me feel that the 6'4"lump sitting at the computer hours at a time a few years ago was only being normal.
We all know the cry of "There's nothing to eat in this house!" uttered upon opening the door of a full-to-bursting fridge.
Reply - "You mean there's nothing YOU want to eat in this house".
Then when there's something they like, they go at it like a swarm of locusts until it has gone, and they can then start bleating the above again.

I had a distinct feeling of deja-vu yesterday afternoon when #1 daughter, nearly 23 years old and living with her fiance, opened the fridge and, having already attacked my specialist Swaledale cheese asked, "Haven't you got any snacks or anything?" (We'd been out shopping in York, and she had already had a tortilla wrap while out).
She then discovered the teacakes in the bread bin and got busy with the toaster.

Plus ša change!
