I was browsing about in the fiction section and randomly picked up a book by someone I’ve never read and read the back. “4 friends promise to always be there for each other while at college… 20 years later that promise is put to the test.”
‘Oh, oh, I thought, I see where that is going. But you know, things can’t carry on being ironic, maybe I’d enjoy this one if I give it a chance.’ I haven’t yet learned the inevitability of a car crash tv moment.
So I flicked it open to near the back and scanned a page to see if it looked like there would be anything too obviously nasty in it…
“…maybe if he had this, it would help Freddie’s dad to remember…”
Back on the shelf.
I am so bored of this part of my life now.
