I went for an eye test for some new glasses today, it was the usual arcane ritual of glass lollypops, strange letter sequences, weird red and green lights, kindly strangers looming out of the dark close up into your face and at the end you come out it feeling a bit giddy and blinking in the sunlight, so a typical night out then (bum dum tish, I’m here all week, folks tell ya friends….).
Having sold a kidney to pay for my gebs and fended off the sales men who wanted me to buy a pair like Goks!
