All my mates were doing it so I thought I’d give it a go. You know what students are like.
The first thing I did was sneeze, which made me very unpopular as pounds worth of the stuff flew skyward. Five minutes later, I too was heading skyward!
It was certainly different. I mean, coming down stairs in a cupboard, pricking the end of my nose on the moon, laying in a canoe floating down a river under a duvet, and climbing a tree full of clocks was something I’d never experienced before. I reached for my coffee mug, fell on the pavement and starting kissing a leaf while an odd animal looked at me and stuck its tongue out.
The nurse in A&E was a bit grim. Not in the least bit sympathetic. Said it was my own stupid fault. I suppose it was really. She didn't even smile when I asked if they had bandages in a pretty shade of pink and asked why she had three eyes.
I had a headache. I was tired. Sooo tired. Never again. Never.
