Life with Suzie – Made to measure

I was preparing my breakfast in the kitchen the other morning and looked up to see Suzie walking through to her studio very purposefully, with a black bra held out in front of her. The strap held firmly between thumb and forefinger of her left hand and the edge of one of the cups held in the same way, in her right hand.

I looked up quizzically.

“Don’t say a thing”, she said.

I didn’t. In fact I knew I did not have to. After thirty two years of marriage I knew I would be getting my answer, before she’d crossed the kitchen.

“I am using it as a tape measure”, she laughed.

That’s my Suzie. She wanted to replace a side table in the living room, with one in the studio and needed to know it would fit. There was no tape measure readily available – the next best thing at hand was her bra.

Oh my word, I can see where this 'life with Suzi" series is heading..... it started out so sweetly, but I suspect before long blogland is going to be regaled with all my embarrassing moments....
