Dressing gown

Dressing gown: 


BRITISH for bathrobe; a long loose robe, typically worn after getting out of bed or bathing.

"He yawns as he fills the kettle, convinced he's up and functioning too bleeding early; though, then again, he knows if he goes to sit on the sofa while the kettle boils, he'll fall back to sleep immediately, wrapped up in his navy and gold dressing gown. So perhaps he's not as functioning as he first assumed.

He snorts and noses a cabinet door open, rifling around for tea leaves. Next comes the sugar and milk from the fridge, oh! and the jam, before he slices a few thick chunks of bread for jam and toast. The kettle's whistling at him by this point and he allows the steeping magic to unfold.

He blinks rapidly. Then stretches. Perhaps he ought to have showered first? He dispels the thought and bites off a corner piece of toast.

And then proceeds to zap off all his tongue's tastebuds while sipping tea before it's cooled off."

  1. Big fan of my dressing gown! In Scotland there’s the ongoing debate about whether it’s called a “dressing gown” or a “housecoat”. It’s always been a dressing gown to me. Loved your little story😄✨
