Bill’s Ideas

During my peculiar youth I spent a year living with my granddad, Bill. Here we are on a bench in front of Island Wall:


Bill had some good stories, and some funny ideas. He said that everything had happened before, loads of times, and one day they’d dig down under the pyramids and find a world just like this one. I asked him how many worlds there were down there. He said about six.

Bill also said not to wear pink because you’d get ‘set upon by gays’, and so for a long time I thought gays were like bulls and if you wave pink at them they’d start frothing and pawing the ground and stuff. He also said not to eat peanuts before you go to bed, because they ‘sit on your chest’, which turned out to be true.


He was wrong about the gays though.
