He fell sick with jaundice or something and now they were just left in the lurch that ‘we need a boy' ‘we need a boy' quick and I was sitting there in the hall while my grandfather was thinking, my dad was there and they were all contemplating ‘who, who, who?' and my grandfather turned to me and says ‘why not, you know let's ask him, he'll do it'."
