Challenge: Weight gain

Here's where you can set a challenge or invite other Wordwizard members to take part in a word-related game of some kind.

To stop things getting too confusing, it's probably best to create a separate thread for each new game or challenge.

A term to describe the situation when you return from a relaxing vacation and discover you're now bigger than the clothes in your wardrobe.

What has actually happened is that your clothes have shrunk in the wardrobe. It is a problem I met very often after reaching 55. My waistcoats are particularly vunerable.

I call it shrink-age.

I think much of it is the nervous energy expended on the beach waiting to see what "jumpee" she is going to lick to death today.

WoZ, can I remind you that Phil lives in England and it is March. A sexy young thing wearing a lot less than normal would have left her scarf and gloves off!
