Ability To See Long Distance Curtailed
On a gay pride march through Carrick I am wearing a green nose and clown's outfit. I am dragged into some silly performance art nonsense where something like a giant skewer is pushed through a passerby. My friend reprimands me saying it is all thoughtless and why am I getting involved? She tells me about a major robbery that has taken place where she works. I haven't heard anything about it. "God don't you ever pay any attention to the news?" she asks tetchily, "we have just had 1000's of binoculars stolen." She is very disappointed at my lack of serious commitment to daily news events.
