My girlfriend and I went to the local department store to choose some crockery. It quickly came down to a choice between two sets: some ordinary stoneware costing about 7 pounds a plate, and the top-of-the-range bone china costing over 25 pounds a plate. I saw my chance: "OK, what's it going to be - the cheap stuff, or an immediate announcement followed by a short engagement?" "Let's just get the cheap stuff." I reckon my next serious chance is going to be the time when the kids come home from school and ask "Mummy, what's a bastard?"
