Sean's Stories

My body was falling apart yesterday. Firstly, I was suffering greatly from a sore throat – the kind no amounts of paracetamols can ease. In a bid to prevent me from ripping out my tonsils to relieve the pain, I bought some cough syrup.

This caused an instant relief, albeit only for a small period of time. It also cheered me up and left me feeling all nice and warm. Wondering what magical ingredients had been included in the medicine to make it so delectable, I checked the box. I then found out – ethanol 5%. Does this mean I was legally drinking while at work?

After my Benylin binge, I made my way into town for an eye appointment. As I have mentioned in previous blogs, visiting the optician is not a favourite pastime of mine, due to my eyeballs being poked, prodded and stained with orange dye. Due to my hatred of ‘eye dentists’, I have been putting off this visit for some time, but last month, Specsavers cut off my contact lens supply, so I was left with little choice but to go.

Luckily, the optician yesterday was nice and decided not to paint my eyes with orange dye; leading to me to believe this kind of behaviour in previous visits was totally unnecessary and simply an act to annoy and distress.

Not much of a story, I know, but it does give me an excuse to use this picture 🙂

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
