Opposites attract...

A little while ago Stu and I were over for dinner at some dear friends of ours when the conversation drifted round to 'opposites attract'. According to our hostess, one illustration of this phenomenon is that in every happy couple there is always an organised and tidy one (her) and a more spontaneous, less organised one (him). It helps if one partner is more obsessed with tidiness than the other, right? Nods of recognition all round from everyone round the table. "So," she asks brightly, "which one of you two is the anal one?" We needed the Heimlich manoeuvre to stop Stu choking.
