On Friday night Nancy, Emmeline and I sat on my bed watching Coronation Street and eating dinner off our laps. Maria Connor (Samia Smith, see picture) was flirting with yet another rotter and this one happens to be violent. If you don't follow Coronation Street -- Maria has dated murderers, the murdered, and Tyrone.
"OH MARIA," Iyelledat the television screen. "YOU HAVE SUCH BAD TASTE IN MEN."
Sybil, who was sitting cross-legged on the floor, looked up and said: "Are you talking to Maria on the television, or about yourself?"
