Two interesting quotes

First off, from Tony Parsons' book "man and boy" here's a bit from page 40. "I can remember seeing Pat smile properly for the first time. He was a little fat bald thing, Wiston Churchill in a Babygro"

Strange, but when I googled for "Winston Churchill" AND Babygro, I got some interesting reading, such as

and

The second quote comes from Chris Cleave's "Incendiary" (page 9), and of course let's hope that I'm using it out of context. Anyhow, the quote goes :"In the night my boy's room smelled of boy. Boy is a good smell, it is a cross between angels and tigers"
Couldn't have put it better myself....
