In the late 1960s, when the Deceased Lady’s parents were in their 70s and practically housebound, she used to do all their shopping for them. Once, she asked her father whether he wanted to try a different brand of tea from the usual. Would he like to try PG Tips?
He replied with annoyance: “No! I don’t want monkeys messing with my packets of tea!”
She looked closely at him, to see whether he was joking. He was not.
