Kind readers have enquired as to the cause of my recent silence.
Truth is that I fell into the clutches of our wonderful NHS.
On discharge from the hospital I was provided with an assessment form (‘How Are We Doing?’). Among the impertinent questions which it asked were some about my sex: Male? Female? Other? Some about my ‘sexuality’: Heterosexual/Straight? Lesbian/Gay? Bisexual? Other?
Needless to say I put ‘Other’ in both cases.
