Even the kids have taken to pointing out my profligate ways. No. 2 child said the other day
“but it’s not just the bike Angela, it’s all the bike related stuff!”
I feel somewhat victimised in the house, they just haven’t let me forget my last purchase of the “special sponge”.
“Is it a ‘special’ sponge Angela?”
“Yes, it’s a bloody special sponge, it’s got space for your fingers!”
And it is a special sponge, not only does it have finger spaces for cleaning spokey bits in your wheels and protecting your knuckles from graze injuries but it also has a special top for driving all the suds down and onto your bike. I don’t know how I was supposed to resist and it only cost 3 times as much as the standard variety.
I blame the scheming, thieving, marketing types, they shouldn’t be able to prey on people like me. It’s too easy, they just have to mention words like micro, multi, special and I’m reaching for my credit card.
Here’s my latest must have purchase. Apparently they are perfect for building a show quality shine on your chrome work. You can use them new or used and you get 40 sheets in a pack.
That’s got to be 3 years worth and they only cost £1.25.
I’m thinking I might keep the purchase a secret from the family until they’ve forgotten the sponge.
