Daughter’s innocent tale of Gaga’s PJs had me in stitches

CLIVE SMITH: Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn about Valentine’s Day

Have your say

It’s been a long time since my youngest has completely and innocently had me in such stitches.

She was sitting on the loo, reading the front cover of Cosmo, which featured Lady Gaga.

‘She even has lovely pyjamas,’ she told me as I artfully applied mascara and wondered how many layers it would take to make my eyes explode in a Gaga-esque manner.

‘How do you know that?’ I asked, but she was on to 52 quick ways to change a wardrobe.

‘Pyjamas?’ I reminded her.

‘It says here: be amazing in bed,’ she replied. ‘It means she has amazing PJs.’

There was a moment’s silence. ‘Or nighties.’ Long live innocence and sleeping tight for the night, without letting the bed bugs bite.
