Themesong - God, I Feel Stupid
Ash - Girl From Mars
July, 1998. Saturday night, Liverpool City Centre, somewhere between the train station and the L2 indie nightclub.
My best friend: “Hey Phil, remember that girl I’ve had a crush on for ages? The one who sees me as a friend and I’ve never told about my crush on her? Well, she told me this week that she has a thing for you. Isn’t that hilarious? Oh, and she’s going to be at the club tonight.”
Inside the club, approaching midnight.
My best friend: “Hey, she’s totally all over you. Aren’t you going to do anything about it?”
Me: “Well…no…you’ve had a thing for her for ages and ages. I’m not doing that to you.”
Approaching 2:00 and closing time
My best friend: “You’re definitely not doing anything? Really?”
Me: “Are you sure you don’t mind?”
My best friend: “Go ahead, it’s fine, really.”
Girl from Mars by Ash plays. My best friend will speak to me again in approximately twelve months.
