Old is as old does

I was tucking into lunch in the Dell canteen, chatting to Cameron, the in-house trainer, when Scott kicked my foot by way of greeting.  He invited me to look him up after I had finished training.  Scott, you will recall, dear reader, was the Scot in Sweden who worked in Ireland.

So this evening we arranged that tomorrow we would have a bevy or two after work.  He needed to fortify himself for Thursday, when he reaches the sad old age of thirty.  Crivens (as they say in Scotland) (or at least, as Oor Wullie says in Scotland), if that’s old, what does that make me?  I may have to go down to the bar and have a wee practice this evening to acclimatise myself.

About snodlander
Snodlander is the nom de plume of Bob Simms. He is an IT trainer, but it's not as glamourous as it sounds. When he's not enthralling classes with adventures through SQL Server, he writes, draws and drinks his own home-brew. Buy his novel on Amazon Kindle at The Young Demon Keeper, It's 74p, for crying out loud!
