I wonder if my constipated old friend from the time when we ran a house for graduate students is still at Cern? It was amusing but serious for him that his main obssesion was his bowel movements. He was a totally brilliant person and was teased mercilessly about ‘had he gone to the loo? yet’.
I didn’t realise at that time just how bright he must have been.
I wonder if my friend from when we first met long ago knows of this? She was abused by a priest but decided after some years to join a Church where they speak in tongues etc. I have always thought this was a flight from the truth but unlike me in these matters she likes to smooth things over
