Have I told you lately that I miss you, pal? No, we're men

Have you spoken to X recently?' my wife asked me the other day.

Now, for the hard-of-thinking, I should point out that I don't actually have any friends who are simply known as 'X', but you know what I mean. The 'X' in question is an old mate.

We've been knocking around together for the best part of 20 years, getting into scrapes, having each other's back and always being there with the 'magic ton', the same 100 quid that has been doing the rounds between our group of friends for as long as I can remember.
