I often wake in the morning feeling more tired than when I went to bed when Lesley, will ask ‘How was life on Planet Rowland last night?’ a reference to the complex and exhausting dreams I experience. This was Monday night’s adventure!
I was teaching a class of students where we were discussing the importance of innovative packaging in ‘fast moving consumer goods’. ‘I’m going to get some examples of innovative packaging’ I said, and left the classroom that was somewhere in Cheadle. I walked to Didsbury Road where I stole a melon from somebody’s house. I suddenly realised I’d left my students in the classroom and tried to get a Uber cab back. Unfortunately I got lost in a village which now appeared to be somewhere in the Umbrian hilllside and was unfortunately populated by the Taliban. There I met an old man in tattered clothes – played by Kirk Douglas. He led me to a place in the centre of the town where the taxi could find me. Suddenly a massive fight broke out with men leaping up and head butting each other in mid air. Then fortunately I woke up.
See what I mean?
