You two gentleman of a certain age might want to think about this, looks amazing, though you’ll be dead so not feel the benefits.

Looks awesome and the King of Sweden agrees.

 

Bang up for this.  Should call it PromHenderson.  You go to pieces in the box*

How does that work? You put your arm up to the letterbox?

Starting to realise that stuff I have owned from new is getting really old. I’ve got a power drill that is 30 years old now. Seen me though several houses and still works. 

sounds like the bit is far too long.

Ha ha. Its a Black and Decker, fuck me it was well made in its time. I'm quite sentimentally attached to it now, won't ever throw it away.

Only 28 and I've got to the point where I'm going to bed and then waking up injured 

 

Had a crick in my neck since Monday

I’ve 20 years on you. I go to bed and wake up feeling like I’ve been run over by a truck then kicked the fuck out of by one of these cage fighters you youngsters like. The body struggles to get out of a bed the mind would quite happily never leave.

 

In other words, fuck off.

Hmm. I won't comment because I'll sound like an old cunt.

I hate to say it but in my medical experience that’s probably something terminal. A crick in your neck in your 20s is a really bad sign. Really sorry for you. Make the most of what little time you have left. Be strong.

I go next door and binge myself to the point of a coma on lesbians, coke and watching close up magic then struggle home on my hands and knees, go to bed and wake up feeling like I’ve been run over by a truck then kicked the fuck out of by one of these cage fighters you youngsters like.

Fixed that for you, no need to thank me.

Looking at pension statements then thinking about a nice camper van. But one with a bit more comfort and a solid bathroom.

 

ideally one that can dispose of a pound of mashed up Dundee cake without a trace.

That's cheered you up no end, hasn't it?

I can tell people in their 30’s that I’m old enough to be their dad

Both my 'kids' are mid 30's. Depressing.
