I went to a wedding on Saturday. It was for one of Margaret's class mates and so I was largely amongst strangers. It was illuminating to see the questions that I got from some of the women.
1. Do I have a list of all the local take-aways for use when Margaret is in Scotland? (She leaves on Sunday for three weeks).
2. Do I know how to use the washing machine? (At least they didn't ask if I knew how to use the kettle.)
3. And, as it was a Asian themed wedding dinner, do I know how to use chop-sticks?
It is intriguing to see how readily (some!) people pigeon-hole and stereotype others.
What would they think if they knew I had just put the Christmas Cake in the oven to cook?
