Where Were You When...?

“Bloody hell, son,” George spluttered as she came into his own field of vision. The girl was slim, darkly pretty, but… “She’s carrying her school bag!”

“Give her a couple of years,” Terry grinned as the girl walked past the van, oblivious to his gaze.

“You’re disgusting,” George told him. “Youngsters today…you’ve got it on the brain!”

“What?”
