Dave's Concussion

Hyperactive’ – Thomas Dolby

It is the first day back at school and Dave... arguing with Joey on the snow and ice. They push and thrust like infants until Dave falls over and bangs his head on concrete and ice. There is no blood, only bony numbness and a trip to hospital...


This time last year:
'I stayed up quite late last night, listening to James Whale and Radio Aire on the headphones. Got up at 12.50pm. Had Sunday dinner. Later, Gran and Granddad Sugden popped down. Watched James Bond on TV.'
