You know what happens when you’re getting older? You do exercises to keep yourself supple, and the only noticeable effect is that you get twinges. It isn’t fair.

I think it might be time to become a couch potato. I’ve never been a couch potato. Lazy as hell, yes, but never a couch potato. Being lazy always meant going for a walk, or going fishing, or going to a party instead of going down the mine to dig coal like proper people do.

And today when I went for a walk, I discovered a pool that I never knew existed, hidden seductively among some trees. That was really exciting to somebody like me who gets really excited really easily.
