Oh No #14

I never thought it would come to this. The whole world was my oyster and I made the most of it whilst the going was good but old age and declining health have finally crept up on me. My circle of friends have given wonderful support beyond the call of duty, staying in regular contact as I vegetate in the prison of my home, totally dependent on my life support machine.
It’s an unnerving experience to find myself so comprehensively reliant on high-tech science. I don’t know what the fuck I’d do if someone took away my mobile phone.

    Haha! Love it Steve. You could of course use the landline and call your old mates old-fashioned like!

    Brilliant Steve. For a moment there I was getting concerned that something really had happened. Doh! But a great drabble nevertheless :)
