We were lunching with the McBrevitys in Marlow on the Thames. Another chum drove four of us there in his SUV. Great! I could drink!

Lunch for six would be at a restaurant just outside the town a shortish drive away. But the SUV only seated five. Rather than take two cars, it seemed appropriate that the oldest septuagenarian should travel in the boot. So I did.

They were kind, offering to pull back the retractable rear shelf to give light, but I wanted the full boot experience! Trouble was, curled up in the dark, I quickly nodded off.... zzzzzzzzzz

    True story, but it wasn’t the first time I’d been fully booted!

    I sent my kids the link and my eldest said he’d travelled from Leeds to Knaresborough in a car boot for a hockey fixture when at uni. He had the full boot experience too. It was obviously more uncomfortable than mine, which was a Mercedes! Ooooh! Ain’t your mates posh Nev! 😁 (No, just old!)
