An e-mail exchange with my

An e-mail exchange with my darling little brother (16 years old), who is currently located at a boarding school near Peterborough:

Peter: “I am bored and have to do lessons and stuff because I am at Evil Make do work place. I also am bored because I have to have a Retest this afternoon because teachers are mean people who enjoy annoying people…….”

Tom: “I had to go to the Dentist this morning, and they’re going to take out one of my wisdom teeth and replace three fillings and put in three new ones. So consider yourself lucky. Am very scared.”

Peter: “HAHAHAHAHAHA that made looking after old people sound fun.”
