His shift was nearly over.
“I’m bastardwellfuckin’ fuc - oh sorry, you’re recording this aren’t you? Let’s say I’m knackered.”
He rubbed tired eyes.
“Five minutes left. Then I’m done.”

We’ll leave him there and rejoin him twenty minutes later. Boots off, feet up, pint of finest porter in his hand, a bottle of Laphroaig nearby.
“You still here? Wish I’d refused to do this documentary now! But now you’re here, you may as well have a drink. A present for me? Thank you! Champagne? Come on, let's get drunk. I’ll put the sleigh away tomorrow. Now, switch off that microphone."

    Really love his particular choice of malt! Interestingly, Laphroaig had the ‘marmite’ concept long before Marmite. In 1992, they had a tube poster campaign saying 8 out of 10 of you will hate it. Well I motherfu.... love it!

    And of course, I love the drabble! 🎅🏼

    (Rather bothered that my Kazakh in the Khasi profile pic hasn’t popped up yet, Drew!)

    Thanks Neville. Actually, I was given a bottle of Laphroaig for Christmas by the good lady Mrs Drew (she knows me well lol). Laphroaig is without doubt my favourite of the whiskies, though I can see why some others wouldn't like it.

    Sadly, still no updated headgear though. I suspect it will be updated when the server is rebooted. :)

    I shall be wearing it today! It’s my duty! Laphroaig is my best too, closely followed by Ardbeg, its close neighbour (I believe). Had some of my homemade Kümmel (frappé) yesterday evening. That put out for the count!
