    Excuse me whilst I put the heating on, I'm expecting a friend later and she doesn't like a cold pub.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    I have just been ordered to bed. Far too much to drink. I dedicated a song for you on Themes for life thread - kissing cousins. Heating? It is still warm here. Ah well time to retire, sorry Fruity. We will chat again. I hope you are well.

    It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb calories if you take it from another person's plate.
