If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

I found Collins' contribution excellent, with first rate syntax and punctuation whereas Dutton seemed lacklustre and totally off his game with ropey dialogue and laboured descriptive passages......................or was it the other way round? *worries*

5!

Thank you
