The almost-quote for today's post was 'Is there anything in the future that can possibly console us for not being always twenty-five?'
Which didn't make the cut because I'm happier now than I was at 25.
Our talk went fine. Some of them seemed interested, some bored, some asked questions, others sat in silence. The usual. If it makes even one of them think a bit harder about road safety it's a good thing. And I think they learnt a few thigns about the causes of accidents - and the causes of injuries/deaths in accidents. So.
(some of them asked a lot more questions about the bike, afterward, than about the road safety, during...not quite what I was hoping for!)
Then we had lunch with Mycroft, which was great. I hope he didn't mind being seen spending his lunch hour with a couple of old blokes, cramping his style.
And...and I started all this for a purpose and now I don't want to go through with it, which makes me feel more of an idiot than I felt already. Think I need to go for a run or something before fetching Sherlock. So I'll answer a question later on.
