IF YOU, LIKE ME, ARE TRYING TO FILL THE HOURS YOU MIGHT LIKE TO SPEND 15 MINUTES HAVING A CHUCKLE AT THIS RUSSIAN PERSON'S  EFFORTS TO EXPLAIN GLOVE BUYING TO THE ENGLISH READER.

    I couldn't resist a look at the bra size one. I'm so glad it was clear...I could have had a terrible disaster. image

    The one thing I did wonder about was, if my hands are full who is going to go the tape? image

    CLEARLY, YOUR PARTNER...

     Lift the chest with both hands and ask your partner to a centimeter just below your chest, with a centimeter should be parallel to the floor....

    OOOH, THAT'S HARD ON HEFFER. BUT TRUE.

    I HAD A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE WHEN I GOT MY FIRST UNIVERSITY ESSAY BACK FROM MY PROFESSOR. THE ONLY COMMENT, OTHER THAN ALL THE CUTTING, WAS "TRY TO COPY A GOOD WRITER'S STYLE".

    IT WAS AT THAT MOMENT, IN THE FIRST MONTH OF A FIVE YEAR COURSE, THAT I REALISED UNIVERSITY WAS NOT FOR ME.
