The director of last night's Corrie was named Pip Short.
This name takes me back to a few years ago when I had the wit of Oscar Wilde. Now, of course, it's Marty Wilde.
"Do you think," I said then, "Gladys Knight's Pips resembled the Greenwich Mean Time pips? Five short ones and a long one?"
Those were golden days, the like of which I'll never see again.
