Old School Ties

Last week a package arrived for me. I wasn’t expecting anything.
I ripped it open and two ties fell out. But they might as well have been two vipers my whole body stiffened as subconsciously I recognised them before the brain could put a name to them. Brockley County Grammar School ties. They expelled me in 1961, loathsome place.It wasnt for stealing a postal order either.

You've done it again...left us teetering. Why were you expelled? Tell, tell, tell.

yes. This is a public interest issue.

Off to Southampton now for the weekend - often the explanation is a lot less interesting than the event itself and this is one of those occasions.

why the tie then?

I cannot believe you would drop that tantalising nugget and then blithely saunter off to Southampton.
