This is a question Morning After Souvenirs

I once woke up in a tent after a particularly drunken holiday pub crawl, clutching a tap. There's a drowned, sunken village somewhere in Wales because of my act of petty theft, but I cannot remember. Tell us what - or who - you've brought back from nights out.

Rewritten DNA
After a fairly messy Saturday night, I emerged late on Sunday and decided to ease into the day slowly, with a long bath. The warm water caressed me like a womb, and I started to feel that I would be able to face the day after an hour or so.

And then I glanced down at my knees. That's odd, they seem to be patterned. Or rather, now I looked closer, scaled. With rising panic, I examined my legs, then the rest of my body, and discovered that my entire skin was covered in scales. I seemed to have turned into a reptile overnight.

A rather panicked visit to the doctors followed, and I discovered that it was a rare form of psoriasis. It took several months to fade, during which time I shed flakes like a hole in a cornflake packet. Thank fuck that it wasn't too severe on my face, just a slight patterning, and that my girlfriend at the time was a nurse and not fazed by unsightly medical conditions!

Sadly (or perhaps luckily) this was before the advent of camera phones etc, so there are no pics.

But I assure you this is true.

She was a Nurse...
Did you ask her if she had every seen the Singing Detective??

Oh yes, I got all those jokes at the time
Unfortunately the GF wasn't quite as hot as Joanne Whalley...

I watched The Singing Detective again recently - it's just as good as I remembered. Luckily I never had the heat-control issues, nor the hallucinations.

Had you drunk a lot of Red Bull?
The reason I ask is that I've twice ended up with similar psoriasis, and both times I'd been hammering the Red Bull (as in a litre a day for a week or more).
