That these two stories, coincidentally or not, were juxtapositioned cracked me up. That though, alas, was the only thing I found amusing.
Not getting plenty of sex, AT LEAST ONCE A DAY, when you are in the your prime is criminal. Distressed me no end. Of course was not the case in the Britain I grew up in and enjoyed the early years of my adult life. Sex, thankfully, was always plentiful. SMILE. Less than once a week when you are in yours 20s & 30s! Jesus wept. Wow. Wasn’t I lucky.
As for the boozing. We drank much too. But, I started late (i.e., when I was 21) and stopped drinking excessively a few years later. But, drinking was very much a part of life. And boy didn’t we have a great time in Britain in the 1960s, 1970s & 1980s?
I hope this will self-correct soon. It has to. Not getting plenty of sex is not normal — for a Brit.
