Remember when grooming was a good thing? Back in the day grooming was a sign of good breeding, fine personal care and a desire to present the best possible version of yourself to the world. Now grooming is a world often associated with the seedier side of life. The newspapers are full of stories about children being "groomed" for sex by predators. But I prefer grooming as it used to be. We pay a great deal for good grooming. It does, after all, pay to look your best. It has to be said Rumple makes the groomers earn their keep. Just a couple of hours before his scheduled salon appointment, Rumple was rolling in the dirt on the paths up Mount Cooth-tha. And after that he decided to have a dip in the local waterholes to turn the dirt to mud. But as always the salon worked wonders and he came home looking like a new man. He was well groomed, indeed.
