Seems Unlikely.

This is a true story. When I turned thirty, which seems like a long time ago now...mainly because it was a long time ago, I went back to university to undertake a post graduate course that would qualify me as a school teacher.  At that moment in time it seemed like a brilliant idea.  Today [...]

Going Deaf for a Living

Going Deaf for a Living

"Going Deaf for a Living" starts in an old pub in Kennington, South London. Actually, that isn't true. That pub, The Old Red Lion, isn't an old pub anymore.  It is a new pub sitting on the grounds, or the grave, of an old pub. Also, the story of "Going Deaf for a Living" doesn't [...]

A Plea From What is Left of my Heart

This year on the Mild Mannered Army I have written 129 articles for your delight, delectation and despisement. I know dispisement isn't a real word and that there is probably a real word I could use to convey the same concept but, and I can't stress this enough, I am a lazy man in very [...]

Between the lines…

Between the lines…

  Ready then? One Mississippi...two Mississippi...three Mississippi... Love in the nineties. Infatuated only with ourselves. Avoiding all work...because there's none available. Today I'll get up around two, from a lack of anything to do. Civil servants, golfing fanatics, Harley Street doctor...overrated. We all say "We don't want to be alone". Finding ways to stay solo. [...]

No I Don’t…

Drink alcohol. "Not even a glass of..." No. Not even a glass of. "What about when you go out, you must..." No. Not even when I go out. "A nice glass of...with a meal?" No. Not a nice glass of that with a meal. "Do you not like the taste?" I don't know. I've never [...]

Sleeper, Kentish Town Forum,13/4/19

I am not a young man. My body has been battered and bruised these past few years by a chronic health condition.  I live with constant physical pain.  That has taken its toll on my mental and emotional health too. Boo, and indeed, hoo. Everyone has problems...burdens to bear. Crosses to carry to their own [...]
