Thank God For May …

Well April – like most of 2020 so far – was fucking shit.

There’s a very high likelihood May will be the same, but like the start of every Forest season – I choose to ignore the realities and believe it could all be different this year.

Even though it isn’t.

But after an absolutely shit past 30 days, it’s a new month, it’s Friday, it’s already 1000 times better than any day that went before it and for that, I’m positive … cheery … and full of faith.

Until Monday.

But here’s to the next 3 days of happy delusion …

I think you’ll be writing this post at the end of each month for quite a while. But please use another photo than that weird stuff. I don’t want to know what you get up to in your personal life.

Given Robert’s habit of oversharing, I think it’s fair to say he would have already written about his love of maypole dancing if he was engaging in it.

Comment by George

Correction. Morris dancing. Also known as shame prancing.

Comment by George

I thought it was the tissue salesman walk.

Comment by Bazza

And you’re right. If he’s not written about it on here, he’s instagrammed it.

Comment by Bazza

The “tissue salesman walk” has made me laugh out loud.

I love that it keeps eccentricity alive in British culture. But it doesn’t half kill any cool aspirations we may have had. Hahaha.

Comment by Rob

i think the collective name for them is a mob of pedos.

No Baz. I don’t do this.

But when I went to primary school, we had this alcoholic teacher, Mr Catchik (who once made me, aged 7, clean up the vomit of a kid who had been sick, which I now realise was a wilful neglect of his duties and just a shitty thing to do) who made us all do it for a year.

The only difference was we didn’t have to wear the outfits and he called it, ‘country dancing’, which I now believe should have been spelt ‘cuntry dancing’ as it makes anyone who does it look ridiculous.

Comment by Rob

I like Mr Catchik.

Comment by Bazza

He made you clean up another child’s vomit?
Did you tell your parents?

Comment by George

I can’t have because there’s no way my parents would not have looked into it and demand action. Maybe that’s what started my reluctance to ever follow the demands of authority, hahaha.

Comment by Rob

That’s what I was thinking as well. Especially your disregard towards authority. Or more precisely, authority you don’t respect.

Comment by George

And you’ve been cleaning up other people’s vomit ever since.

Comment by John

That’s almost a compliment. Most would say I’ve been making people sick ever since.

Comment by Rob

Plausible deniability.

Comment by John

the world needs more pisshead teachers.

Comment by andy@cynic

I hope the world will get some good at the end of May.
