Off to work every morning, clean-shaven, youthful necks in knotted ties, days spent in unknown labors, home again at suppertime to take a critical glance at the evening meal and to shake out the newspaper, hold it up between themselves and the muddle of the kitchen, the ailments and emotions, the babies. And it’s not entertainment.

Resigned to being disowned and somehow judged not up to the task, we step anxiously into a parallel universe in which giant slugs are discovered in glove compartments, slacker types found dynasties of dog-children after a bit of hanky-panky with a pet, and a feline-featured flatmate turns out to be part of an entire family of circus freaks.

Till we see the pattern of the deterioration, we really can’t say. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Also-she said-there ought to be one place you thought about and knew about and maybe longed for-but never did get to see.

One can understand why Lionel might not be jumping on board with the whole marriage proposition, if Lorna and Brendan are his role models. Uscivano di casa ogni mattina, ben rasati, il giovane collo strizzato dal nodo della cravatta, e ricomparivano la sera, pronti a dispensare occhiate di sufficienza alla cena e a spalancare il giornale, facendone una barriera contro il caos della cucina, i piccoli malesseri, le emozioni, i neonati.
