It wasn’t simply the fact that I was sat by an outdoor swimming-pool watching a mum from Doncaster pretending to be the blonde one in Abba, nor that Agnetha and the other fake Swedes weren’t all that good. It wasn’t even that in recent months, I had seen both Mama Mia, and We Will Rock You, despicable acts that in another, previous life, would have seen me soundly, and deservedly thrashed .

...being the questionable memoirs of a certain North Queensland high school boy on his 1950’s journey through the leafy glades of learning. But (shock horror!), it's in the first-person present tense, the mark of a rank amateur. Yet this was the only way I could make the story work, dear reader, and you, with your perspective and experience, will judge it for yourself (hopefully with a smile).
