The kids were in bed.
Mrs RC and I were sitting on the sofa, watching Regenesis.
I was slowly sipping from a glass of very tasty Chilean red wine.
I was wearing THE white t-shirt. The one that Mrs RC loves me to wear, nudge-nudge, wink-wink.
I was cool.
All was right with the world.
Enter Custard, the lumbering Golden Labrador...
Suddenly I was NOT cool.
Suddenly things were NOT right with the world.
The classic answer to this sort of thing is to add white wine, but we were out of it, so I doused the t-shirt in water and then scrubbed it with Vanish, one of those "miracle" cleaners.
The red stain turned green.
I rinsed and tried again. The stain faded slightly to a sort of fungoid green - really uncool, and definitely losing that "irresistible" factor.
I also missed the end of Regenesis...
So that is two new t-shirts that I need!
