LONDON - Lillian McTavisham, an old high school friend of Louise Minchin, recently had lunch with the noted BBC newreader and presenter.
The two met at the highly prestigious Lady Godiva's House of Ribs Restaurant located near the Millbank Distillery in Pimlico.
Minchin and McTavisham each had a plate of baby back ribs, with a side order of coleslaw, and broccoli and cheese soup.
McTavisham mentioned that she had recently seen Manchester United play on the telly (tv) and that she really liked one of their latest acquisitions, a 22-year-old young man from Mexico named Javier Hernandez Balcazar, who goes by the nickname of Chicharito, which means little pea.
Lillian, who is recently divorced is the same age as Minchin 42. She remarked that if she was twenty years younger she would love to date Mr. Chicharito.
Louise took out her cell phone and logged onto the Internet and found a picture of Chicharito. She smiled and told Lillian that if she was twenty years younger and not married that she would also love to date the young Red Devil.
Both women laughed. Minchin later arranged for her publicist Nigel Thornbutter, III, to get a hold of the Manchester United player and request a photo for her English football collection.
Thornbutter did as Mrs. Minchin instructed. He also just happened to mention to Javier that Minchin had appeared in a recent issue of PlayGent Magazine in an eight-page layout, which had outsold the two previously top selling PlayGent issues.
He added that one issue had included Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, who appeared in a nude butter churning themed layout and the second issue featured Spice Girls Victoria Beckham and Melanie Brown wo appeared in a nude crumpet baking themed spread.
Chicharito quickly wrote back and he sent Louise Minchin three autographed 8 by 10 glossies of him in action plus he FedExed her a football that he had personally autographed.
He also gave Mrs. Minchin two tickets to attend the Manchester United vs. West Ham United game on November 30.
SIDENOTE: Louise Minchin called her friend Lillian McTavisham and told her that she has just become Chicharito's number one fan.
