I thought today would be panto day, but I double-checked and it was comedy day instead (panto's tomorrow). Well, it truly was a comical day, not just because of the three brilliant stand-up comedians at the corporate event I was invited to, but because my phone went dead, my watch did the same, the event lasted a couple of hours longer that schedule, with the result that by six o'clock I was in no man's land. Everything worked against me – even the notoriously slow Hammersmith & City line seemed slower today – probably was, but it's difficult to know without a watch.
Anyway, I had a great time, and I managed not to get drunk, although there were about thirty bottles of wine on our table, which sat just eight people . . .
