I’ve just done something I

I’ve just done something I have always wanted to do. Along with my decorating detritus, I have just taken an old TV belonging to my parents to the refuse centre. Chichester refuse centre is great in that you park your car alongside a low wall and throw your rubbish over it – to a 15 feet drop below.
Now I have always always always wanted to do one of those television-dropped-from-a-great-height things that you see in films where the telly goes bang, so I was really looking forward to that. But when I threw it over, it rolled over as it fell and landed on its back. No spectacular “bang”, merely a muffled “whump”. The tube remained intact.
How disappointing.
Almost as disappointing as the fact that the council don’t have recycling facilities for these things.
