Day 80 of Lockdown

Masks hanging from the rear view mirror are the new fuzzy dice

Babysitting Mistake

When I was a lazy teenager, I used to babysit quite often for my niece, Charlotte.

One fateful evening, I went to my brother's fridge and being the lazy teenager, I spotted a bottle of orange squash concentrate and thought to myself, I can't be bothered to get a glass, pour some concentrate, and then mix in the requisite water to make the drink - I'll just drink the concentrate and drink some water after to wash it down.


That was gross because I took a swig right from the bottle and others would have to use it after me.

That was even more gross because my sister-in-law had saved some old cooking oil back in the fridge and had put it in an old orange juice bottle to keep it...

Yes, I took a long hard draught of the bottle and as soon as the oil hit my epiglottis, I knew my mistake.

I was retching for hours afterwards.

I am still retching 25 years later when I think about it...
