That was a very stressful 7 hours.
How have I become so dependent on this blogging ?
Heroin is one of the few drugs that I have never touched.
But I have many friends who have.
I once went to Gatwick Airport to pick
up 2 friends who were arriving from a
holiday in Spain.
Like all the rest of the drivers there, I was gazing at the arrivals screen. Their flight finally came
up and said LANDED. I went and duly paid my £2-40 for 1/2 inch of coffee.
There is always at least 45 minutes wait, usually nearer an hour before your customers come through. So I went and found a comfy(not) chair.
I was well into my book, there was an arrivals screen above me.
After an hour, with the screen still telling me LANDED, I thought WTF?
I went to the enquiries desk to ask about the delay.
When the plane landed it blew a tyre. For some reason they wouldn’t let anyone off ’til the tyre
had been replaced.
When my friends eventually came out, one of them was so pale I thought he’d seen a ghost. Paul
was grey. I knew what that meant.
I got them in the car and had the pedal to the floor (how did I not get a speeding ticket that day?).
We were nearly at Littlehampton, when they asked me to stop. Both of them got out and had to vomit.
I was worried now. Both of my friends looked really ill.
Paul, looking even greyer now, assured me they’d be OK, and directed me to an address in Littlehampton.
We arrrived at the address, but I was asked to park at the back of the house, in a sort of service
When they came out, I was amazed.
They had gone in looking like death, and came out with a spring in their step, looking like they’d just spent a week at a health spa.
Please, DON’T do Heroin . Nasty, nasty, nasty.
