Someone called me as I passed the bus station today. At first I thought he was calling someone else – you do, don’t you? – and then I thought he was maybe a friend of my brother. I had to ask him.
He was in my year at school. Once I knew who he was, from certain angles I could see his 14 year old face. If I hadn’t got his name I never would have guessed.
Age hadn’t particularly got at him, but he looked a hell of a lot older than I thought I was. And he is the same age as me. Fuck, I’m on the brink of being old. Kill me now.
