Until I discovered it's all in the description. The picnic basket is long gone, but in its place we have the "Smoko" Box. Fitted out at the local army disposals store, its suitable for trips to the motor sport, or for smoko down on the farm. Hubby is more than happy to boil a billy and sit out in the sunshine for morning tea or lunch, provided the word picnic is not uttered.
At some stage, I'm hoping to sneak it out to the park or the beach but I don't want to blow the cover of my picnic basket in khaki.
It's all in the description. And as a writer I figure I must be able to use this technique in lots of other situations. So what creative descriptions do you have for things around your house?
