When Aunty Marie visited us years ago, we children would gather round her, competing for her attention with our stories and games.
I remember one day during one of her visits, my brother John arrived in all hot and bothered, threw himself down in an armchair, and announced with great drama:
"We just did sex education at school today."
Aunty Marie enquired: "What was that like John?"
He replied indirectly but with great fervour: "I'm never getting married."
The Aunt asked him why.
"I wouldn't have the nerve," shot back John.


Tonight Aunty Marie and my brother John are together again.
