Today I had the most original excuse ever for being late. I stayed over at a friend’s place last night. They left early for work, and one by one their housemates got up and left for work. I, however, overslept and was dead-locked in by the last one to leave.
I called my friend, and she directed me to the spare keys. The only hassle was that they only worked from outside. We tried calling two black cab companies, offering them a tip of five pounds for an imaginary fare if they’d take the keys and let me out, but they wouldn’t. We tried calling the health centre across the road but they ‘won’t get involved in local things’, and a passer-by I hailed and asked to help me wasn’t able to open it. Eventually I had to call the police. They arrived suprisingly quickly and managed to laugh surprisingly little at me.

    Did you remember to flog some stuff from your “friend’s” place on your way out?

    Yeah, Mia – what’s with all this “friend” malarkey? Are you worried we’ll find out you’re a ‘bo?

    I’m just trying to be a bit subtle… not much chance of that, I guess.
