The Editor's Bit

Third time lucky? Let’s hope that was the last lockdown we have to go through, but with the way things are going, who knows what’s going to happen next? I thought it was supposed to go in the order Brexit > Boris > Covid-19 > Alien Invasion but it’s starting to look like World War 3 might come before that.
The important thing is, the bars are back to their normal hours and we can go out drinking until the early hours again, if we want to.
I must admit, I haven’t had much in the way of late nights yet; I had a mild stroke on New Year’s Eve and lots of early morning hospital visits have messed up my late night routine. It only affected my right hand and the first I noticed of it was when I struggled to open a bottle of bubbly. After seeing a physiotherapist a few times, I’m glad to say I’ve got most of the strength back in my hand, although there’s still a way to go with my fine motor skills, which makes it difficult for me to roll cigarettes and joints, so I’ve (almost) given up smoking!
By “almost” given up, I mean I’ve been smoking the occasional pre-rolled joint, which are a lot stronger, so that might have something to do with me not being able to stay awake too. Most of the captions and all of this column have been written in the afternoon, which is a first for me, and I haven’t been drinking, yet! Let’s hope it’s not too different this month.
I’m not a great fan of afternoon drinking, but it was sometimes necessary during the partial lockdowns. If I hadn’t been out on a Friday afternoon, I wouldn’t have seen Joy, who was visiting her daughter Fiona and having a drink with the regulars in Molly Malone’s.
Well, that’s it from me; enjoy your Stun!
