Given that I am now almost housebound medically and theoretically from Monday possibly legally’ I thought I would supplement my usual posts with a series of almost diary like posts. Some people have their entire blog composed of such things and I thought given my rather unique situation then I may as well while a couple of hours over the coming weeks or months as we all, or myself at least go slowly mad.
Today I still had appointments to make which involved going on one of those famous red London Double-Decker buses. It was still quite busy onboard with some people forced to stand. It was all rather surreal.
The man next to me seemed somewhat spaced out which probably made things easier for him. He was also wearing a pair surgical gloves and he kept, playing and stretching them. It made me feel like I was about to undergo some sort of bizarre rectal examination.
The lady in front of him was quite a character too and possessed the most incredible laugh. It reminded me of the American Wrestler Ted Dibiase – The Million Dollar Man. I have no idea what was making her laugh, perhaps she was out of medication having had it swiped by the secret rectum examiner next to me. She certainly made me giggle to myself.
I’ve always liked weird characters, maybe it makes me feel like I fit in more. Not just in real life. I remember in Star Wars everyone else who was little liked Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia or Chewie but for me it was Darth Vader and if I had to conform then Han Solo.
I think I must have the same outlook for Brexit. I liked it before it was popular, once it was happening but everyone was outraged about it, when it surely must be cancelled and when the green-light was finally lit. I still like it now when it really doesn’t matter at all as we probably aren’t going to make it anyway.
I noticed quite a few people trying to avoid touching handles and polls and bells. I think they are all late-comers to this particular party as I’ve been using my elbows, knuckles and anything other than my hands and fingers for as long as I can remember. I’m so experienced in fact during the winter when I wear gloves, I can unlock and operate my iPad using my nose.
These are the sorts of skills which I think give me the best chance of getting through this nightmare.
I’m sure this is a new experience for almost everyone so if you want to leave a comment about your day, the situation in general or heaven help us some much needed hilarity then be my guest!
