I quite liked this article.
As we walked back down the pier, Ben asked me a simple question that floored me: when was the last time I’d had fun? I had to go back a few weeks. I’d got drunk in my friend Sophie’s flat and we turned up the music very loudly and played a game. She lives next to a bus stop, and every time a bus passed the window we danced really aggressively to catch the attention of the upstairs deck and try to get them to not only stare but start smiling. It was the first time in a long time I’d cried laughing – the kind of fun that makes your face crinkle up and your insides go all warm. Afterwards, lying on her airbed, not helped by the glow of the booze fading, I felt sad, because I couldn’t recall the last time I had felt like that.
So…when was the last time you had fun?
