On Tuesday I had a visit from an old college friend, Big Mac, named not just because of her height, six foot two, but her addiction to McDonald’s burgers. As she says herself, she’s a “grand lump of a girl with an aptitude for finding fast food outlets off the M50”.

Big Mac has been living in Wichita, Kansas, for the last 10 years and returned home just before the auld Covid started. We used to have great craic in college. Jesus, with her sun-blocking shoulders and unruly black curly hair, she hadn’t changed at all.
