âHow was last night?â my mother asks.
Wild passionate sex… did not feature.Â It was a friend’s birthday drinks.
âYouâll never guess who was there!’ I say.Â ‘Andrew Maclean!â
My first real – in every sense of the word – boyfriend.
âIt was fine actually.Â AsÂ in â we chatted a bit – but – well – I canât help feeling, with an ex, thereâs always an element of competition…â
âWhatâs he doing now?â
âHeâs a management consultant!’ I say, laughing.Â ‘So â yeah â not really a competition!’
‘I was going to say…’
Thank you Mother.
