I have discovered, tonight, where the speed skaters at the Winter Olympics first thought up their technique. We moved our television further into the corner so that all could see and hear it better. The trouble is, I now have to unplug it at night left-handed. And as a new CD rack is just a little bit in the way, it involves a kind of manoeuvre designed to counter-balance my beer belly while reaching forward and not falling face-first into a heap of wires. I knew I'd seen the technique someplace before. I was thinking this tonight as I bent my legs and stuck my arse out far behind me. I think I'll get one of their safety helmets. But not the suits.
