‘Have you ever seen anyone making love?’ said Laura.
‘To tell you the truth,’ said Mrs Donaldson pretending to cast her mind back, ‘I don’t think I have.’
‘Oh good,’ said Laura. ‘We were bothered it might not be much of a novelty.’
‘Oh no,’ said Mrs Donaldson, ‘it would. It would.’ Though given the choice she still wasn’t sure she might have preferred marigolds. ‘No, I’ve never done anything like this before.’
