No one had anything to say to us regarding our question yesterday: does anyone use a breadbox any longer? Is it worth comparing something in size to it?
But reader Ken was appalled to our referring to Prince Charles as ‘Chuck’. It ‘shows the mentality how the younger generation think’, Ken wrote.
Assuming Darren is a member of ‘the younger generation’ is unfortunately the exact kind of thing that will make his ego grow even larger. Certainly larger than a breadbox.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
