Eventually I guess but Mother's as tough as old boots so I wouldn't waste time spoiling for a fight. I'd be very wary of distress calls too. Mother is far more likely to be the cause of the stress than to be in need of assistance to escape any such stress. Nor would I put it past Mother to seemingly be distressed to get everyone to feel sorry for her and it turns out to be a huge great act! Mother's a great loss to the stage...
What is your favourite work of fiction?
I must admit I tend to avoid fairytales these days, it is a case of being a bit too close to home for me. Mother ought to take the same view but I bet she doesn't. I do like detective novels. Good fun trying to work out who the killer was.
What is your favourite meal (either cooked by yourself or at a restaurant)?
I do like a simple but nice roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings. And this is something I get right as Mother has complemented me on this before now.
