YM: No, I forgot the sun-cream He’ll be all right. He’ll just have to keep his t-shirt on in the pool… (pause)… I am NOT going to ask a complete stranger for sun-cream… (pause)… I’m NOT GOING TO ASK… (pause)… Because all they’ll do is tell me to go and get my own fucking sun-cream… (pause)… Because that’s what I’d say if a complete stranger asked me.
