Desperately Seeking Something

‘Destination Zululand' – King Kurt

Whilst I was at school, Martin went to work with Freddie.

When I got home, Martin confidentially called me into the caravan and told me that at dinnertime he had gone for a walk through the village of Murrow and had found an old purse in a phone-box. At first he told me there was £10 in it, but then he told me the truth – it had actually contained £85!!! He’s now wondering whether to hand it in or keep it…

Tonight, we went to see Desperately Seeking Susan with BMW and Phoebe. BMW looked great, Phoebe was really nice (and very attractive), and the film was very good.

Afterwards, we went to the skating disco, but Martin didn’t get fixed up with Phoebe. Instead, he ended up with Joey’s ex – Fiona Smallbeer (Carol Ransome’s best friend). Why he’d go for a little ginger barrel over a glamorous-looking brunette I’ll never know. I think it’s probably because he thought she was too posh for him or something. What a day!
