    1. Good point. As an aside, I had a hamster once called Lucky. My aunt looked after it while I was away for a week or so. It died in her care and, kind soul that she was, she replaced with a hamster that, regrettably, looked nothing like Lucky. Upon returning from my break, I rushed in to see my hamster, lifted up the imposter and wailed,’that’s not lucky.’ Which was true in a number of different ways. I was twenty-four at the time – kidding!
