Roddy Doyle: A man condemned...to a spa weekend with the wife
The wife wants to go to a spa. I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and that’s what she came up with.
It serves me right. Why didn’t I just get her a scarf or one of those One4all vouchers — or even both?
The problem is, she expects me to go with her. I went to a Christian Brothers school. It wasn’t a happy time; they were mad bastards there. But I’d rather go back to the Brothers for a year than go to a spa for a long weekend.
