Click here to hear the author read his words:
My name’s Charlie Galles, also known as Chick the Chink, and formerly Big Luggy, and I know I’m maybe not the brightest knife at the picnic but I’ve got a new job as a sort of guide.
Y’see, I used to be a kinda guard, like a backup, you might say, but I got promoted quite recently, just after my mum died.
I come from a fair-sized family, got a sister who’s not the worst, likes rugby and horses and stuff, and two brothers, about whom least said the better.
They’re a bit of an odd pair, to be honest, the wee one’s in the theatre or something and the other wanted to work with kids but that didn’t turn out too well, so I don’t know what he’s doing now.
Anyway, about these nicknames, the old one’s simple ‘cos in Scotland we call ears lugs, so if you’re kinda well-endowed in that department you get called Luggy, and I can outflap Dumbo, so you can join the dots from here, I’m sure.
The other one’s a wee bit embarrassing ‘cos when I was at school, way up north in darkest teuchter land, I was in the big city one time and got taken for a meal, sushi it was, and when I got back to school I told my mates and they laughed for a week and were really bliddy unforgiving ‘cos I said I really liked Chinese food.
