Add more makeup, especially accent those almond-shaped eyes. Buy a sexy dress. Loosen up! It's not professional. There are other places besides the workplace, you know. Anyway, this movie gambit just might pan out. Besides, why not try something different? All the guy could do is brush you off. Try until you find a guy who'll fall for the routine.

The actors have their lines all written out for them. How can we guarantee that he'll follow this script? Ad-libbing is supposed to be fun. Fun, fun, fun.

Mary, aged four, was brought here from Stirling for safety by her mother Mary of Guise, and spent three weeks hidden after the heavy Scottish defeat at the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh.
