The Old Man's Lost Moments: The Secret Life Of Tweezers
"I wish I knew what have happened to my tweezers.... I do have three pairs in London... and now I can't find any...." He do look accusing as usual and I do feel a twinge of my perpetual guilt....
"I've got a pair you can borrow." I do say.
And do duly fetch and hand over my tweezers. Some time later I do see him trot past with his seed tray to put on the propagator. "Have you finished with my tweezers?" I do ask.
But... dear children... do we find those borrowed tweezers? No, dear children... we do not.
Somewhere... in a secret world of The Old Man's making... pairs of tweezers do indulge their private whims and hidden passions.
