You know what... definitely starting to feel older, take longer to recover etc
Found a dead bloke with works still in his arm in Green Park decades ago. Post-raveathon, talk about an immediate comedown. Cold and blue lipped, massive bruising round left arm and chest/neck, no point in cpr, which is what happens when you shoot temazepam jellies (25mg and virtually extinct now)
Few similar from a junky’s journey - bus stop toilet, a squat, pavement in Philadelphia, a random pub bog o.d with people screaming and no cunt could manage accurate chess compressions properly
Have arrived ‘home’ to overdoses from mates (or their mates, how rude), blue lights galore. Any drastic drop in skin/flesh temperature immediately tells you they’ve flatlined and it’s a body’s peculiar temperature which stays with you (especially if you’ve been forced to try resuscitation)
Never had a cadaver reek up the gaff though Bill, full Grim Britannia effect 9.5/10
Isn't that an example of something that used to be a feature of standard English, which we've lost but Americans have retained?Gotten? American influence is seeping in insidiously, through the tightest of cracks and filling us to the bring with its tainted slimy filth. Although when you think about it, why don't we have gotten if we have forgotten for example. Although sometimes I think that the whole point of the English language is that it doesn't make any kind of logical sense so I'm on the fence here really.
