This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

Escape from Orpington
I used to work for popular cosmetics and not-dead-things bath rubbish company Lush. I only ever met one other straight man while working there - everyone else employed by Lush is a cute girl, so that was rather nice...

Two weeks after starting we had a Christmas party at a posh club off Regent Street. The bar was free to a certain extent, but not cocktails UNTIL the boss got drunk and said YAY WOO COCKTAILS ARE FREE TOO! I got durnked...

I left to get my last train home, sat down among the throngs of drunken office party revellers, and promptly fell into a drunken sleep.

The next thing i know I'm walking down a dual carriageway. After a bit i drunkenly realise that i'm in ORPINGTON. I must have got to the end of the line and been removed from the train! How odd.. And orpington was a long way away from where I lived...

After wandering, getting thoroughly lost, and trying to find a taxi, without any success, I give up and resign myself to the fact that I'm probably going to be stuck in Orpington all night.

At which point i turn the next corner, where a nice warm number 47 bus is waiting to take me to RIGHT OUTSIDE MY DOOR.

So free cocktails, cute girls, and miraculous rescuing from Kent all in one night..

The job was piss easy too!
