February 21st 1973

“went to school – still feel a bit bad but not so bad as yesterday” / “bt Dad at chess again” / “got another dental appointment from school” / “Goin’ to buy Fireball off Sims”

Maybe it was man-flu after all? (Boy-flu?)

I appear to have healed remarkably quickly given the apparent severity a couple of days ago.

Tonked* the old man at chess, and made what (now) seems like an unlikely purchase of Deep Purple’s “Fireball” album, having already borrowed it off Sims just a few months earlier.

Home taping killing music? Nah, this kid recorded stuff and then bought the album later, the same argument as nowadays with the proliferation of illegal downloading and file sharing. *ahem*

*Yes, ‘tonk’ is a verb
