Friends, I am being placed in a terrible position. My wife and family are going away to stay with my in-laws for a few days. Firstly, can I state how much I will miss them. But secondly, it presents me with a dreadful opportunity. In simple terms...
Three whole nights to behave like a single "scemo" again.
For those who have never lived as a single "scemo" (fool is my kindest translation) it generally consists of three things.
1) Staying up very late playing computer games/watching sport.
2) Talking at immense length about football, nonsense and good-looking women.
3) Drinking more grappa than is sensible/advised by government health experts.
As a responsible, married, father-of-two etc, is this acceptable behaviour? Shouldn't I cut the grass, tidy the attic and catch up on the ironing? Will you tell the missus if I don't? Should I restrain myself or should I go for it full pelt and what the hell?
Oh, the torment...
