The Small Object of Desire is in that mood where she needs to have been drawn by Leo Baxendale.We'd been round to my parents' for lunch and they'd had "Pollyanna" on the telly, the one with Amanda Burton as the auntie. We were back at mine with pots of tea when she asked:

"That film your mum and dad were watching..." 
"Yes. Pollyanna. What was that all about?" 
"It's a timeless classic. Haven't you seen it before?" 
"No. What was it about?" 
"Well... Gladness and the redemptive power of positive thinking. And that." 
"What a lot of toss. I'm going for a poo."
