When
 
Legal
and
General
told
me
 
that
 
I
had
 
been
 
identified
 
by
 
their
 
computer
as
 
"the
average
 
housewife",
I
felt
rather
 
disturbed.
Perhaps
 
I
should
have
felt
honoured
 
but
the
word
'average'
has
the
unflattering
 
connotation
of
dull
 
and
boring -
hardly
 
something
 
anyone
 
wants
to
be
selected
as
 
the
prime
 
example
of.
