A recipe for disaster.

Take a spicy, young couple.

Slowly sprinkle in two pieces of well seasoned baggage.

Smother with a large debt, line with bank statements and layer with a redundancy notice.

Stir in generous amounts of undiluted alcohol.

Dust with an unpeeled lie.

Grind in an affair.

Bring to the boil with a hint of innuendos.

Simmer in a toxic mixture of hatred and regret.

Baste generously with warm tears.


Serve with papers.
