ok. So it is hot. “Hotter than the holiday island of Hawaii” according to the prissy news presenter on low-brow ITV news at lunch time. Not only that, but I’m male. And single. And English. And still young (30 is young, dammit!).
But the good news is that, in spite of all those things, I am not likely to strip down to a pair of naff baggy shorts and horrid filthy trainers with no socks, and then walk around swigging beer and shouting “OLAAAAY OLAAY OLAY OLAY, OLAAAAAAY, OLAAAAAAAAAY!”
Ah, the English in summer. Is it any wonder that the rest of Europe looks at us and gets embarrassed?
(Actually, the beer swigging part is tempting.)
