“I had to get fully undressed to go to the loo.”

“To get it on, I had to dust myself with talc.”

“Going to dinner parties, one knows how much to eat before it becomes uncomfortable.”

It was one of the earliest scientific concepts we explained to our kids. Proud was the Daddy whose two pre-school children chorussed ‘Displacement!’ when asked why the bath water level rose when he got in.

Cinched waists without rib removal surgery? How marvellous.

But I can’t help wondering whether displaced lumps of excess flesh might start protruding elsewhere.

Urgh.
