Ouch! One of those days. I attended Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Birmingham City in the second division. Nothing so painful in that. No, the pain was inflicted by one of me mates as we had just parked the car. For some reason, known only to me (and I’ve since forgotten) I left my thumb in the open doorway of the car. He slammed the door shut and I yelped with pain. He had managed to shut the door completely, with my thumb trapped between it and the frame of the car. I think that the rubber seal must have cushioned the blow and prevented any real damage.
I also noted that I had received my final offer from UCCA – no note as to what it was but, knowing now what my A Level results were, it wasn’t that onerous.
