Friday 27 February 1987

…In assembly Mrs Wade tried to catch us out by asking us what was tomorrow’s
date and the date of the day after that.
She wanted to know what was special about the day after tomorrow.
Here are some of the answers people gave:
“Pancake Day.”
“Ash Wednesday.”
“Easter Day.”
“Loughborough Rugby Club v Lichfield.”
“Beginning of Lent.”
“Friday.”
THEY WERE ALL USELESS.
I knew of course: St David’s Day…

Hmm – a bit of boasting here, and rather graceless boasting at that.

But then again, anyone who thought that the day after the day after Friday could be another Friday, or even Ash Wednesday, deserves a fair helping of an 11-year-old’s scorn.
