She's nice looking and very smart. Funny too, but not as in funny in the head. More like funny in a self-depreciating way. "I was dumped by being completely ignored. Not even a text did I get. I have no man now. The tide wouldn't take me."
Mary's friends are mad about her. Mary is very kind and gentle, they say, and would make a lovely wife. She's in her mid-30s and I'm asked to be on the lookout for the right man.
I realise this is a big statement. Men are desperate eejits when it comes to picking women.
