How exciting …… Adam the Science Boffin at work asked if we had any old garments that he could tie dye and breathe new life into as part of one of his demonstrations of a intricate and complicated scientific type nature ........ this sounded like an ideal opportunity for us to add a flamboyant, one-off “essential” to our summer attire and it would have looked most rude not to plummet our wardrobes for suitable garmenture
When I got home Darrell was equally as enthusiastic and together we immediately started to robustly sort out our old shirts, in the end deciding to give Adam, the aforementioned Science Boffin, what used to be our best white shirts, the fronts of which have become heavy stained by a variety of tomato based comestibles, mainly curry and sweet and sour sauce as well as spaghetti hoops and Darrell’s current favourite Barbie Spaghetti, of which several mahooosive scoops of Vanish have failed to remove completely.
Darrell wanted to proffer his sling for the experimentation ..... however I pointed out that as he didn't have a spare sling we couldn't risk having his arm dangle precariously unfettered and thus risk any further injury whilst waiting for it to be dyed, so he relented.
I was so excited when I saw Adam the Science Boffin the next morning that I am afraid thrust our plunder into his hands before even saying “Good Morning Adam …… here are our shirts for the dying of”
However I could see that he was already examining our shirts in a very forensic manner, formulating calculus and quadratic thesis into dye density and other such wonderful stuff of an intelligent and mysterious type nature that only boffins and Mr. D understand. We shall await the results with very great impatience!
