If not 31 by now.

I’m 31 in July.

The comment below was a reference to the fact that the whole goff thing seems to lessen in important once you realise that *as you approach 30* the whole ‘life is suffering’ is hard to maintain as your primary mission directive once you realise that in all likelihood, you’ve got another 30 years or so to go.

This is why we owe it to our Prime Minister to get busy with the fucking and procreation… so that our children’s children don’t have to go through what we have.

Incidentally… ‘Fruit Tree’ by Nick Drake is one of my favourite songs of all time.
