The sensitive side of Mrs. Mills

Mrs. Mills, as always, takes on the most difficult problems and provides sensitive, workable solutions. The question:

A magazine recently suggested that a desirable attribute of a gentleman friend was an ability to knot a cherry stalk with his tongue. Should I aspire to it?
And the answer:

I had an uncle who used to amuse us after dinner by folding his napkin into a rabbit that ran up his arm when stroked. I expect knotting cherry stalks is a similar old-fashioned, post-prandial entertainment.
You can find the rest of Mrs. Mills' great column in the Sunday Times.
