It was some time before Jimmy or Len saw any humour in the episode. The only source of conflict between Jimmy and me was a pretty, blue-eyed girl at our school named Mary. She had long, golden hair. Mary liked both of us but did not seem to favour one more than the other. Jimmy and I continually vied for her attention. Often the two of us walked Mary home after school — one on either side, each eyeing the other. We showered her with gifts — shoplifted, of course. One day we decided that Mary should have a grown-up present.

He looked at me as I turned and looked into a shop window. I turned back as the grinning constable, our placard under one arm, led Jimmy past me towards Central police station. I waited outside the station for half an hour before my accomplice was let out after receiving a severe talking to.
