There are lots of them, obviously. I'm a 36 year old university educated, professionally qualified mother of four, but I don't, for example, really know what the difference is between a King Edward and a Maris Piper and which one I want when I need to impress with my roasties.
Nor, for instance, do I actually know what colour eye shadow suits me. Or how you choose an eyeshadow in the first place.
Or what half my friends actually do for their jobs. I mean I know what the job title is, and I know who they work for, but what is a deal architect, or a blue sky thinker anyway? And yes, I do really know people who have that printed on their business cards.
Or, of more immediate concern, what is the etiquette when someone gives you a present you (or in this case your six-year-old) already has? She, obviously, wants to come clean, complain loudly, and get them to send her something else.
I want to pretend it never happened, get her to write a lovely thank you card, not mentioning the duplication at all, and put the offending item in the "present drawer".
Which of us is right?
