Bear, despite being absolutely rigorously policed with dire warnings about chewing gum, managed to get some on his sleeve. That is, the sleeve of his new shirt. The expensive one. The one I got from BHS without looking at the price tag. The one he looks utterly gorgeous and awesome in.
It's this one, and he looks amazing in it (photo from BHS website). He looks fantastic in blue but he usually wears red, because that is his favourite colour. I refused to allow red trousers.
I know from bitter experience that while I can mutter, grumble, curse, use ice cubes and WD40, I will never get the basic stain out. I'll get the sticky off, but not the chewing gum mark. It isn't that noticeable, but it will always be there, probably interfering with my ironing. And he has worn it three times.
Chewing gum is now definitely banned!
