Yes, after yesterday's post there was an article in Times 2 this morning about baby buggies (or push chairs as they were called in my day). Not about which way round baby is to sit - it seems accepted that they will always face towards the pusher.
This article was about the 'in' buggies to buy and their price. The world has indeed gone crazy. While children in Syria, and many other places, are starving, have little or nothing and no prospect of ever returning to their homeland, the article listed the best buggies.
Prices were, respectively, £329.95; £405. 00; £699. 00; and the things which were deemed most important were three wheels (with a front wheel lock so that the pusher could also exercise by jogging at the same time); adjustable handle bars so that various folk can push (and a lock so that if you lose your grip whilst jogging the whole thing will lock); a handbrake; reclining seats, sun canopy; water bottle holder; folding is not deemed to be important. But then, how many of the folk using these would ever need to fold it up to stagger on to a bus anyway?
Such buggy-pushing burns 75 calories a minute. I ask but one simple question. If mum/dad or whoever is busy checking their water bottle, notching up the calories airing their swish buggy as they jog up the street - are they interacting with the occupant at all?
