Time for a Bath for these Babies…

“I’ve been using my red mittens a lot,” says Arthur. “You can tell because they’re getting darker.”

I look at the red mittens, exactly the same make and style as Darcy’s. Not too long ago, they were the same colour as Darcy’s too, but now they are, undeniably “darker”. Dark with grime, dingy with use, oddly crinkly as well.

“And those dried bits?” Arthur waves the blackened mittens under my nose. “That’s my old snot.”

You know, I’m thinking Arthur’s parents need to invest in a washing machine…
