We don’t actually need the issue “solved”; we like wallowing within the wretchedness of others. Notably sexually. Nobody cares about individuals having time. What we actually need are untimely ejaculators with herpes.
It’s on this spirit that I’m delighted to return throughout an issue that I’ve by no means suffered from and am unlikely to come across: “diet face”.
Final week, the broadcaster Jenni Murray stated she was content material to not lose any extra weight, having misplaced 25kg (4st) after a sleeve gastrectomy, as a result of she didn’t need her face to break down like Nigel Lawson’s. So diet face – individuals getting skinny in center age after which trying gaunt and aged – is a factor! Clearly, it’s extra of a factor for girls, as a result of all the things is.
