Saturday 18 October 1986

At last, the weekend. I went to town, ostensibly to go to the game, Shrewsbury Town versus Derby County – a game that Derby won 1-0. However, I also saw the love of my life… walking hand in hand with a(nother) man. OMG! What was she doing? How could she do this to me? It was strange, but I was walking up the pedestrianised shopping area through the crowd of Saturday morning shoppers and she was coming down hill. It wasn’t until we passed that I saw this, this… this bloke hanging off her arm. Oh woe is me. My one and only with another.  In my diary I went back and added a very unsavoury note to 29 May.

Ah well, there was nothing for it but to buy some music to cheer me up. Thank you Cyndi Lauper. I bought True Colours on cassette. I saw a mate on the bus home – he’d got me into U2 so his tastes were I suppose pretty cool. Naturally(?) I was a little nervous about discussing Cyndi Lauper. I needn’t have been – he’d already got it and told me that it was pretty good – and it was – I even added a note in my diary to that effect. And relax…

If this world makes you crazy and you’ve taken all you can bear…
