Kicking AML’s Ass: In Room 101

"You asked me once," said O'Brien, "what was in Room 101.

I told you that you knew the answer already.

Everyone knows it.

The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world."



The trademark beard has started to fall out.

I might need to rename the blog.

    I've been doing some catch-up, Stef.
    Good to see you banging out the updates on the ward.
    This beard thing - it's over-rated. Mine has been coming and going now for six months. It's the jowls, though. The dreadful jowls. The sight of the jowls, after a while, overwhelms and there is a sudden regrowth of the wonderful jowl camouflage.
    It will come back Sir.
    Good to here that the blood's improving too.
    You'll be chasing the nurses down the corridor once the squits have been sorted.

    Don't let my kids hear you say that beards are over-rated. My Anna has been trying to get me to grow it like Gandalf for years, and has never seen my chin. Ella vaguely recalls me having a #1 cut all over, but she was at infant school at the time.

    Hell, there may be jowls under mine, I have no idea, but I'll find out soon enough. I did find an odd sock and a missing screwdriver in there earlier.

    The worry is that when it grows back, it tends to be a different texture and colour. Most bets here are on a white/curly combination. The smart money is on a Tom Jones look, but Chris has her money on the Tom Thumb style 🙁
