Going Gonzo – Hell To Skelter

Saturday, 13th April 2019.


I thought I might escape any Adulting today, but one look at Louis’ trainers made me realise I wouldn’t.

One shop and one credit card transaction later, we were in the George.

We sat upstairs and ignored each other. I watched the gutter of life(that includes myself), come up and down the spiral stairs.

An old woman, desperately hanging on to the railing said, “This is like a helter shelter!”

I heard, “Hell To Skelter”.


Louis dumped me in Staines. People to see, places to go. So, I got back in the car and went to Tesco.

Cheap diesel.

Cheap beer.

Large snack selection.

The I came home and pretended to enjoy the afternoon. Played rdr2. Watched X-Files.

I feel normal again. It could easily have just been a virus. I should get my blood results back early next week. That will be fab.

There goes Louis on the train. And I’m gonna spend the next 2 nights at Carter’s. Apart from the obvious benefits of having someone care, I needed to get out of my room.
