So I’m at a pub with some of my friends who bring along someone new — which is a very rare event in Cardiff. Or maybe I just need to expand my social circle.
Said newbie person happens to be a foreigner to these humble hills and rivers, so we get chatting about the differences between the UK and Canada etc. And somehow, the conversation turns to American attitudes to plastic surgery, and in particular Leslie “Fish Lips” Ash. And I make the singularly stupid utterance: “So if you were thinking about plastic surgery…” – at which point I realise just what I said and tail off. Never really recovered from that!
So today I cried off my other social engagement – although that was more because someone’s spiky response just put me in the wrong frame of mind for the rest of the day.
