The only surprise was that it had taken so long to get to this pass. ‘I am getting pissed off with staying at home.’ I complained that there was nothing to do except call for my friend, but since he stays in bed until 12 o’clock (at least!) this was really frustrating (the fact that I was up at 7.30 to do my paper round was perhaps the real bone of contention).
I don’t ever remember being that much of a fan of staying in bed. Perhaps it was my paper round, but I just didn’t do that teenager thing of staying in bed until stupid times of the day – until that is, I started going out on the ale and even more so when I was a post student dole-y for twelve months (but that was in the 90’s anyway, so of no relevance here!)
