Mr. White had his annual birthday, and for a change from his normal routine, decided to go drinking in town *snigger*. Unlike his usual piss-ups, I was obliged to go along – probably due to the fact it was his birthday, and unless you’re the Queen, you only get one of these every 365.25 days.

While I enjoy a few pints in the local pub, I rarely frequent those based in town – mainly due to them being overpriced, overpopulated and overchaved. We started the night’s festivities in Weatherspoons – I was pleasantly surprised. They had a good selection of drinks, and lots of comfortable seating. I was also able to read the days news while taking a piss – some thoughtful person had stuck The Daily Mail to the wall, which makes a change from reading WAYNE WAZ ‘ERE.

Once Weatherspoon’s supply of Magners had run out, I decided (or rather, was told) that we were going to another pub – The Bell. The Bell is a nice “Real Ales Pub” on Walcott Street, and if I had my way, we would have spent the whole evening there. When we finally arrived (the walk seemed to take forever), I enjoyed a lovely pint of Bath Gem. Simon stayed off the booze, while everyone else drank themselves into an alcohol-induced coma.

When I had finished my pint it was time to leave. Simon and I had to make a stealth escape. In the past, my attempts to leave have been met by frustrated drunkards – mainly Mr. White.

I had planned on walking home, but due to consuming 3 pints, and the fact it was 10.30pm, Newbridge Road seemed a million miles away from Walcott Street. I got a taxi. Simon took a ride too. My journey home was spent listening to Mr. Goater and the driver discussing Robert DeNiro, The Chemical Brothers and the hours in which a taxi chauffeur works.

Still, that’s it for another year. Happy birthday Mr. White, don’t drink too much now… oh wait, you already did.

  • 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.
