Things I have done since turning 21:
-played boggle with my boyfriend’s parents.
I’m watching this child genius programme on channel 4 and there’s always a split in these things between hardcore intensely pushy parents and parents who are like ‘oh shit, my child’s a super genius, how do I make their life more normal and less prone to crippling bullying’.
One of the mum’s from the second school of thought was going on about how she’s got her son to take up the trumpet so he can interact with people that aren’t maths and engineers and she said ‘possibly he’ll get a shag out of it, when his time comes.’
She is hilarious. Can you imagine finding out that your mum said that about you on national tv when you were 10. Oh what a woman.
Drafting a poem about the legs of an old English dude wearing a kilt at a wedding. As you do.
