Reading the comments that followed this post by fifi reminded me of my dad. He was not renowned for his neatness- I am much like him. One day I came home from uni to find him smoothing his work clothes down all over the floor as he took them off to change into his casual clothes.
"What on earth are you doing?" I asked as I looked at the arrangement of clothing all strewn neatly about the floor, like some kind of art installation.
"Well your mum always complains that I leave my clothes on the floor messily!"
He must have been a bugger to live with! (But a funny bugger)
