Really wgwg, you are spoiling us, last night we had not only the return of Jarred but Bilal as well - who'd a thought it.
Judith started off the night with another snatch of Dolgo's life, and what a picture she painted! You might think that Parliament is a starchy establishment - but our Dolgo is a cleaner there and he has a key... What goes on in the Home Secretary's office after hours is, to put it mildly, surprising, if not pornographic.
David read us a short piece featuring a dad and his son thinking about skateboarding - ooh not sure that is a good idea. David's piece had me squirming - and not because of the writing. How embarrassed would you be if your dad wanted to take you skateboarding? Exactly.
Jarred is appalled by the American election result and his piece did not pull any punches. It might have been an allegory, but waves of beasts arriving on a beach to be met with slaughter did not take too much effort to decipher. A really strong piece. I wish he'd come back to visit us more often, but he's a very busy man with many balls kept spinning in the air, not to mention he's now a doting father - got any baby photos to show us Jarred ;-)
Bilal didn't read, but he was there and gave feedback and I guess that's all is needed from Bilal ( but if you ever do pick up your pen again and write something we want to hear it first.)
Then it was off to the pub for three cups of tea, a coke and a tonic water - and I'm not even kidding. I can't believe I just wrote that - have we lost the plot?
