Febrile Fitz # 6
Hullo, and welcome to another look at the world according to David ‘Fitz’ Fitzgerald – the ex-TSW presenter turned 1970s sitcom writer. Er, we mean Evening Herald diarist.
This week’s effort features an appearance by Ratboy (his son) and is a good column for fans of Rainman-like diatribes against airport security. Does that make him crazy? Does that make him crazy? Does that make him crazy? Probably.
FEBRILE FITZ # 6
ONE BUNNYHOP: “How many married men would dare to pack a bag they’re taking on holiday? If it were left to me there would be one toothbrush, one flannel, one extra pair of pants, one bottle of shampoo and maybe one bottle of conditioner; it’s optional, but conditioner can double up as a rinse agent for the pants!”
TWO BUNNYHOPS: “Next, security check-in. ‘Remove your belt and shoes’ was the instruction. Behind me Ratboy, stepped out of his trainers and two sniffer dogs passed out!”
THREE BUNNYHOPS: “Moments later I sat back in my usual grump on the plane, wondering what lay ahead for the family FitzGerald over the coming days. Would it be as exciting as the airport? Then I caught the eye of the stewardess; I smiled; she smiled back. Things were beginning to look up…”
Heh heh! Oh, Fitz, you are a one.
