Bobby Thape (16), who has set aside the next two hours for GCSE revision, has initiated that time period by casually asking his dad about his early 20’s.
As Bobby could see his father’s unbelievable and clearly over-exaggerated stories thinning out, he turned his attention to his mum who had, by this time, joined them in his bedroom.
His mother was of course unable to resist an hour of nostalgia, and suggested at a colourful history that knocked both Bobby and his dad fairly sick.
‘Oh my God, my mother was obviously some sort of pig,’ said Bobby.
‘Thankfully, I wasn’t actually listening to most of what she said. Well, two hours – that’s Geography done,’ added Bobby.
