Earlier this year, I fell ill and had to take a day off work (shocker). It is a weirdly exhilarating feeling to see a full day of nothingness stretch out before you, even when you are under the weather. I spent my free time drinking lots of fluids and doing crosswords online. That is the badassery that is my life.
I understand that crosswords are the dinosaurs of online pastimes- doomed for extinction- but I urge you, the next time you’re faced with an expanse of free time, ease up on the facebook thing (it’s not real life) and do a crossword instead. Good clean fun. Your Mother would approve of my advice. She’d nod her head in quiet understanding.
€5 has been donated to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland for the completion of this ‘thing’- in loving memory of my Granny, the crossword queen. Click here if you would like to donate online.
