A good boy recieving favour

The circle of presumption and prejudice is closed.

Tom Stoppard’s play “Every Good Boy Deserves Favour” criticises the alleged Soviet practice of treating political dissidence as a form of mental illness.  People that behave differently are regarded with suspicion which in turn alters the behaviour of the people they come into contact with. The circle is closed.

Should everything we say be taken quite so literally?

My apartment was raided by the police because I was overheard threatening murder by two boys playing in the street. The fact is my friend and I were re-enacting a scene from the Italian job.

Coming of age

It is ever thus.

An impression of enforcement of gender roles. It somehow became important to reference the biological pathwaythat too often leads to drudgery. Anonymity reinforces the sense of normalcy. Time for a change I think.

The man in the picture was my bank manager.

So functional and businesslike was he, even “good morning” felt like a perilously binding contract. However, the window in his office was at pavement level and whenever a woman walked by he would jump from his desk and stare greedily at her receding legs.
