Lily was my paternal grandmother. Born and bred in the Gorbels of Glasgow.
But this goes deeper than that.
I was 20 years old before I knew what these were :
1 A prostitute
2 A transvestite
I learned one day on the Ku’Damm in Berlin, caught in a traffic jam on duty as an RMP, when the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen started talking.
I said to Mick – my oppo – Oh. Wow. She has a very deep voice.
This is why I find Lily Savage so funny. She reminds me of the trannies on the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin and the time that my all male platoon took me to the Poof-Poof Club for a night out.
To this day I don’t understand why they wore those gas masks with the long hose in porn films.
STEEP learning curve :o)
