Dearest Those With A Degree In Hirsutology,

As a sheepy I of course luff the rain and getting wet. Getting wet is my all time favourite non dry thing to do.

look, ewe can see how happy I am !!....elated in fact !!

Before it rained I was as white as the whitest thing ever, like pure snow or talcum powder, but now that I am pleasantly soaking wet to the skin!!...my wool has taken an appearance de la noir !!...why's that then ?

Well there ewe have it , I'm soaking wet
On a day like this ewe'd never have bet
Because the sun is out and feeling free
Oh ......hang on, that's another country !!...DOH !!










Men are the same as women, just inside out !

....or any other fibres for that matter. It's interesting that a grey jumper will get darker when it's wet, but a white T-shirt doesn't.

Hmmm....there must be a science to the reason here why wet hair looks darker and why a white T shirt don't . I wonder if the fact that a wet white T shirt can appear translucent have something to do with it !
