Christmas in Glasgow...
Angus, sitting in the kitchen of his home in Glasgow, calls his son in
London the day before Christmas Eve and says, I hate to ruin your day,
but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-
five years of misery is enough.
'Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams.
We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,' Angus says.
'We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you
call your sister in New York and tell her.'
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. 'Like
hell they're getting divorced,' she shouts, 'I'll take care of this,'
She calls Glasgow immediately, and screams at her father, 'You are NOT
getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm
calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then,
don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?' and hangs up.
Angus hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 'Okay, Fiona' he says,
'they're coming for Christmas - and they're paying their own way.'
