Not the slightest desire
"No, I've never had the slightest desire to be like Flashman and I think my military experience killed any particular idea of derring-do.There was a young lady this morning at a book shop who told me about playing a game at a dinner party asking men who they would like to be and three of them said Flashman. Now, I don't know that they'd thought hard about it, but I don't think they'd really like to be Flashman."
George MacDonald Fraser, OBE, novelist, screenwriter and historian
2 April, 1925 - 2 January, 2008
