  • So yeah, anyway — I'm thirty-four and my mother is desperate for me to get married. She thinks settling down is what you should be doing at thirty-four. How would she like it if I turned to her the day she hits eighty and said: 'Hey, Mum — when are you going to break your hip? All your friends are breaking theirs'?
