This is a question Expensive Weekends

Chthonic says he's still reeling from a trip to a wedding that cost him nearly £600; while a friend of ours hazily presented his credit card to the bar staff in a shady club in the Baltic states. You know how that one ended.

I wasn’t even conscious
My missus borrowed my car to drive to the theatre with a friend, it was going to be a late night so I left her to it and went to bed.

I woke up to a text saying “really sorry, I’ve crashed the car” and nothing else, so I put it down as a crap joke.
Then I got a phone call saying the same.

Turns out she’d rolled the car going down a pretty straight bit of road. We’re still not sure how.

She and her friend were fine but the car was a right off and, unfortunately, she only had third party insurance to drive my car.

As we were saving for our wedding I decided to buy an older car for about 3k with the plan on buying a newer one after the big day.

I’ve since had to replace the gearbox and repair the engine after the cam belt went.

The value of the old car and the cost for purchasing and subsequent repairs on the new car are around 12k.

So my most expensive weekend was spent sleeping in my own bed. I think it works out at about £1,500 per hour of sleep.

But the wife was fine and had a nice time seeing that there David Tennant in Hamlet.
Which is nice.

It would probably of been cheaper to hire him personally to read her a book.

What book?
I'd suggest the highway code...

Pissed as a fart?

Lack of ability.

The police kindly brought her home though.
