14. The Soul-Destroying Loss Of Megabowl
You know when Megabowl was the social hub of your entire existence and then they pulled it down and installed a bingo hall and then you literally had no life anymore and everyone missed Wimpy and that creepy electrocution arcade game more than words can say? Yeah, every Bedfordshire nineties kid shares your pain. We were shunted from our favourite ten-pin bowling heaven to the streets of Bedford Town Centre, which we prowled for a surrogate fun-provider.

I love Stephen King and music festivals; I eat my toast upside down; I daydream about getting married probably a bit too much; and I wish every day for a pet sausage dog puppy (who never materialises – sob).
