I was rather outnumbered last Friday night, in a good way - Mr K had invited his best mate over for dinner. He has recently become a bachelor, or rather, a week-on week-off dad, but this was his week-off so he was playing bachelor. We also had the resident bachelor, Uncle J, just home from a trip to the island where he owns land, and in need of some home cooked Aussie tucker. (I encourage his visits after he has been away as he normally brings me a large blue bottle from duty free!)
I had a choice of three. Mr K was otherwise occupied - having decided that now, with guests here, was a good time to fix the light in the pool. He now had transformers and screwdrivers and globes on the outdoor table.
Mr New Bachelor was busy opening beer.
So that left Uncle J, who first had to give me stick for needing a man in the first place, teasing me that I had my own device for the job. I told him that yes, I did have my rubber man, but this night, I could not manage on my own. I needed a real man. I think he liked the ego boost as he did as he was asked.
Either that, or he really wanted the pickled onions in the jar I was trying to open.
Do you have a rubber man in your drawers?
