Some days go on forever. The receptionist was off sick. Everyone was tired. The chef was in a foul mood. The heating was playing up and it was raining outside.
I asked Emma to help me book in the late arrivals.
I can’t she said. I’ve already drunk almost two bottles of red wine. When I get back home, I’m going to finish another one and get lost down an internet rabbit hole for several hours. Then I’m going to send some inappropriate tweets until I can’t see the screen and then eat a kebab and starfish the bed.
