There will be no problems, says Pappa. He has anticipated all problems. She wants to make a new life for herself and her son in the West, a good life, with good job, good money, nice car — absolutely no Lada no Skoda — good education for son — must be Oxford Cambridge, nothing less. She is an educated woman, by the way. Has a diploma in pharmacy. She will easily find well-paid work here, once she learns English. In the meantime, he is helping her with her English, and she is cleaning the house and looking after him. She sits on his lap and allows him to fondle her breasts. They are happy together.

Did I hear that right? She sits on my father’s lap and he fondles her superior Botticellian breasts?
