Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightning indeed! (well, not for me.)
Every week i get to go home an hour earlier than usual on a set day. This is known as my 'early day'. Every three months or so, i get to add an additional hour to this time for the deep joy of getting a blood test done. I dislike getting my blood tested, not because it is scary, cos its not. It's just extremely tedious and i always think of other things i could be doing with that time. So today being that day, i rocked up to the hospital, was seen by a very nice, but very small Russian (They are always foreign. I've had Polish, Malaysian, Scottish...) nurse who was a bit rough with the tourniquet, plastered a pad to my arm and then i was on my way again. Upon leaving the hospital, i noticed the sky was a funny shade of grey/black. Having not budgeted for a bus home, i took to my heels in a hasty fashion. I just made it to the bus stop near One Stop when all hell broke loose. The rain was flowing horizontally, mad-sized hail stone started pumelling the passing cars, the wind was crazy, screaming half-drowned school kids nestled into the stop next to me and a thunderstorm raged overhead. The quality of light was quite peculiar. I took my headphones out of my ears to listen to the storm and smoked my roly in a contented fashion.
