Arriving home from the school run, laden with homework books and rejected packed lunches, I am greeted by a parcel, all shiny and expectant on my porch floor and unusually addressed to our one and only Ophelia Days. I could not recall ordering anything for her lately despite constantly discovering fabulous accessories with great Ophelia potential! What on earth could it be and more to the point who would've sent it? Who knows her home address or have I unwittingly left a trail for mannequin stalkers right to our abode somewhere? And who had been shopping at the store 'The Mutts Nuts'!!? So, with a mixture of great excitement and worriment Thing Two and I fought over the packaging until out at my feet plopped a packet of merkins! (Yes, incase you are wondering I did have to do some quick explaining to the said Son-taken on board with a shrug, all par for the course in this quirky family!)
What a gift from the Gods, a fannytashtic freebie from a (hopefully) friendly follower of the fou fou fiasco, a mystery merkin shopper! Surely we need Sherlock on the case to solve this curious conundrum. I laughed and cried at the generosity of this ahem...lady beard buyer-how thoughtful and considerate in this winter climate to protect Ophelia from a chill only a few women will know.
Whoever you are kind soul, please accept our many thanks for the lovely present, for the ensuing laughter and for the reminder that my life is like no other-I am truly blessed with good fortune always presented in a most unusual fashion!
Once the hysterics had subsided the quest became to choose and fit the rug and find appropriate underwear to show the merkin off at its most magical! EPIC FAILURE!!!! All my pants are too ahem...large!(Ophelia being a model of ridiculous proportions!) and the only other underwear in the house is vastly inappropriate! Maybe lingerie shopping is next on the to do list or perhaps just by writing that down I have guaranteed an influx of undies through my post box! Tom Jones eat your heart out! When we are properly equipped we will put together a photoshoot for your eyes only, but in the meantime if anyone out there knows anything that will lead us to this big-hearted Ophelia fan please don't hesitate to give us a heads up so we can thank them properly!
P.S You left the price on!
