How not to fit a garment

So when I was fitting my Jasmine blouse I put in a pin to tell me where it needed an adjustment.  Somehow this got lost when I took the blouse off and despite much searching could not be found……..that is until several hours later when I went to put my cycling helmet on.  Yes, the pin had been lodged in my hair all that time and made it’s presence known in a very uncomfortable fashion.

It reminded me of Edward Lear’s Old Man with a Beard and makes me wonder what else is in there.

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, ‘It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!’
