Simon slumped in front of his oversized TV channel surfing before alighting on ‘Britain’s Greatest Medium’. Ah, shadenfrauder. On screen a pathetic crone was being conned by a tanned silver-haired fraud.
“I have a message for you from a John … no James … Jack! Jack wants you to be happy and move on with your life…”
The medium turned suddenly to face the camera.
“Simon Herbert Jones your ennui is killing you. Cyncism is preventing you from forming any meaningful relationships. You have not phoned your mother in five months…”
Simon turned over to watch ‘The Bill’ in disgust.
