Simon: "I had a dream about nuclear apocalypse. It was animated!"
Me: "You haven't even seen Barefoot Gen yet."
Simon: "I know!"
Me: "My work here is done!"
Simon: "I was all running around in those burnt circles where the bomb had dropped."
Me: "There'd be more than just a burnt circle. Or less. Depends on how you look at it."
Simon: "And it was all grey."
Me: "Like an East German tower block."
Simon: "Or a Kraftwerk album."
I get up and make us coffee. In the background I hear Noel Coward starting to sing "Don't let's be beastly to the Germans" from Simon's laptop.
Typical morning at the Jays then.
