My Daughter and Prostitution!


This headline and heading appeared in our morning paper, the Natal Mercury:

 “The dark side of the moon

 Durban is a port, giving it a history of prostitution as old as the city itself”

This was no sooner set eyes on by Much Better Half than she remarked, ‘That reminds me of Kerryn.’
Of course, I gave a hoot of laughter, and she said, ‘You know what I mean — her Master’s Thesis.’
Would you believe it, that very thesis got quoted near the beginning of the article!
