Lillian went up to Mitra, one of her carers at the Queensberry St Child Care Centre. As related by Mitra later:
“Mitra, do you have babies?”
Mitra: “No, I don’t have any babies.”
“Why don’t you have babies?”
“Well, I never got married, so I don’t have any babies.” As Mitra says this, you get the feeling that this is not the happiest aspect of her life.
Lillian, pointing to Mitra’s slightly plump midriff: “Are you pregnant?”
