“One of the beauties of doing MSN with M— is that you really get full attention from her […] she types fast, that’s extremely helpful […] our chat speed is just a touch slower than actually talking …

“But it’s not the speed, really. You just get this absolutely marvellous feeling that you’re fully interacting with her, no fussing with other things and doing other stuff—she’s there, right on the button, banging away at the keyboard right after you. She types […] sentences, not too long, not too short, just right. No funny symbols, no funny punctuation marks and that kind of thing.

“You’re absolutely left in no doubt that she understands what you write and what she’s thinking on the other end, all ten thousand miles away.”

  1. Ooooo, wouldn’t you like to know …? M. is a fantastic gal. She works in private banking “somewhere abroad” and does the work of (literally) 30 people. She isn’t the love of my life, though – but I luuuurve her all the same!
