"that's just clingfilm".
"Is it?. I thought that, but when I unwrapped it, it was the tape".
He unwound a bit. "See? " I said. "It's not clingfilm, it's the tape".
He unwound a bit more. The tape/clingfilm changed from being loose and clingfilmy to being tight an tape-y. He stopped unwinding, and we examined it. It was still clear, and it didn't have a rough side. Whatever it was, it wasn't what I needed. I mentioned this to him.
"No, I don't think it is the tape, look at the side of the reel, that's not clear.". He continued to unwind. More and more clear tape rolled off the reel. I wasn't too bothered, I had a larger, correct, reel coming at some point. The tape had reached the floor and was starting a little pile. He continued unwinding. "This is really odd", he said.
And them, after yards and yards of clearness, there was white tape underneath. With a rough side.
Well done him :-)

But I am going to do it. I am In a few minutes. When I've had a coffee, checked on the chicks, tested those DVDs to make sure my DVD player can read them......
