The DVD Incident Part 2

I had previously been fretting in a Jon Ronson sort of way about a Random Bloke threatening to lend me a DVD in a pub. Which is bollocks, and only idiots think like that, so I pull myself together.

I'll never see the bloke again, so I cease to worry about the DVD-lent-by-odd-strangers ramifications. Because there shall be none.

Monday morning.

Makepeace [Brother’s fiancé and lady who drives me to work]: That Random Bloke knocked on our door last night. He wanted you to have this DVD.

She hands me it in the car.

I feel the hairs on my arms rise. This is Not Right.

Me: Em. Keep hold of it until tonight will you? Then I’ll take it home. Don’t want to cart it around work. (And have the questions. ‘What’s that then Tired?’. ‘Oh, it’s just a DVD a Mental lent me.’)

I get home. I put the DVD next to the others that rest against my little-used tele-vision.

Sitting on the sofa, I stare at it in a troubled manner.

That night, I have a quite vivid dream in which Random Bloke fucks the eye-sockets of a decapitated pig head and repeatedly howls my name. Whilst watching a copy of the DVD he has just lent me.


To be continued.

That's a tad disturbing.

That he tracked you down, I mean. (Though your dream is a little on the weird side, too. No offense....)

Google up "You got nothing coming". Can't remember who it's by, sorry.

It's the true story of a chap who is befriended by a Random Bloke, and ends up killing him in self-defence and doing hard time for it.

Not that that's going to happen to you or anything. At all.

I'm just sayin'.

Too stunned to say anything except thanks for putting that image in my head.

That was a brilliant solution to a sticky problem...one does meet odd people in pubs. But the DVD lending takes it too far!
