    Plumbing the depths

    This is why I never do home repairs - my efforts invariably make things a lot worse before they get better, if, in fact, they get better at all

    Eat to the beat

    I wasn't aware of the high regard with which eating is held in these parts and how two o'clock is a revered hour when, whatever you're doing and wherever you are, you must stop for lunch

    Rebel without applause

    In the olden days playing the renegade was a cinch - you got a tattoo, smoked a bit of weed and strutted around burbling on about the system and how everyone except you was a sheep

    What the guy doesn’t see

    After a few months of seat-giving-uppery, it slowly dawned on me that I was always the first - very often the only - one to offer. How selfish, I harrumphed to myself and resolved, next time, to stare out of the window and not budge, just see what happened
