… pressups that is. I’m not quite that old yet. But, I guess, my intention in life is to make the most of every day.
Continuing: I went with my friend to London a few weeks ago for his 22nd Birthday and what a night that was. We started off in Stevenage, got a little tipsy, and then headed for the train at around 10:30pm or so… this was a good start. We’d all eaten and were having a laugh.
One of the guys we were with suggested that we go to the Dublin Castle – I’d not been there before but he promised that it was pub prices but not the usual price you pay, if you get what I’m saying!
First of all – the entry price of £3 was very reasonable. They sold cheapish pints (I went with Red Stripe if I remember and we had some shots). But the awesome part was the dancefloor/stage area where they had a DJ playing track after track of cracking tunes! So we had a boogie, and then after a couple of drinks here we went on to our final destination – Koko! The whole evening being slightly more inviting as a result of Birthday Boy getting guestlist for our group. We felt like VIPs taking the fast track entry. Lovely!
Here we met some cool people and continued to have a good time until it closed. On leaving we walked to Kings Cross (now in the early hours of the morning…) where we had a McDonalds and then waited in the station.
Now the next encounter – the British Army Captain of 28 who I mistook for an insurance broker… He had to show me his ID as I wouldn’t believe him. He was on leave for a week from Afghanistan to attend a wedding (over Jubilee weekend). To cut to the chase, I jokingly asked him to get down and do 50 pressups and he did – so that has now inspired me to work harder to achieve that (and after a night out too!).
I could go on but it was an amazing night!
