This episode is subtitled: ‘Wish I was glamorous…’
So there we were at the public meeting, keen to have our little protest about the proposed new supermarket. Kim was looking radiant, I was looking like I’d walked through a waterfall and out into a gale, and who should be hosting the meeting but Shaun McArthur.
‘Let’s nab him at the end and call in a few favours,’ said Kim, excited by this new opportunity.
‘What favours does he owe us?’ I said, pointing out the obvious flaw in her suggestion.
‘Well, having a friend on the planning committee’s got to be worth something,’ she replied.
Friend? I had one slow dance with him over 30 years ago, which Kim probably doesn’t even know about. And I bet she’s never spoken to him in her life. My mind was whirring. Friend. I would love to be his friend but I’d like to be in fresh dry clothes with my hair not plastered to my face for my next encounter. Talking to him tonight was out of the question.
