What a Story! - An Uncomfortable Situation for Brian




Almost everyone, at one time or another, finds himself in a situation which he would rather have avoided. Brian's experience in Brighton was such an uncomfortable one that he is likely to remember it for many years.
 
to lecture on how to use an overhead projector
in the top flat of a block down the road from the school
It all went off quite well.
He doesn't really know which is which.
particularly uncomfortable because all the furniture was piled up
He went through the key ring.
I went up to what I thought was the top flat.
You feel uncomfortable to start with.
books on biology, chemistry and botany
It looks as if he's either spring-cleaning or preparing to go away on holiday.
Mr Brooks had taken it to the school for the day
Not only were there weird books ...
I don't know what's going on.
The people ... are very fussy about their furniture.
