Click here to hear the author read his words:
Ian is an aggressive sort of guy, and excitable, always seems to me that at any moment he might just erupt.
I, on the other hand, am kinda easy-going, laid back, what you might call a wee bit Zen, not much irritates me, although I do cheat at word prompts, even from the lovely Denise.
So we’re in this outdoor restaurant, well, outside the indoor part, if you know what I mean, at the end of a sweltering day on the Mediterranean coast, when, in a matter of minutes, the sky clouds over, the rain starts bouncing off our plates, and I think my dorade is contemplating a bid for freedom.
As the staff tear around in an amusing frenzy of parasol (or in this case parapluie) opening and customer relocation, mouthing breathless apologies as they hurtle past, Ian decides to be miffed and, catching one unfortunate by the throat, immerses him head-first in the charming little fountain.
His demands for an immediate resolution to the unforeseen downpour and resultant chaos go sadly, but unsurprisingly, unanswered, perhaps due to the fact that not only does Ian speak the flavour of ‘English’ made famous by the characters in Irvine Welsh’s seminal work Trainspotting, but also that he is still holding his intended audience by the throat with his head below water, a combination of circumstances quite unconducive, in my opinion, to meaningful discussion.
When I smilingly endeavour to point this out to my friend, he responds somewhat more brusquely than I consider polite, so I serenely pull my trusty Glock 17 from my pocket and calmly shoot him in the face.
