dedalus Posted September 2, 2013 Share Posted September 2, 2013 I am in love with the idea of being in love, but I want a quiet, respectable girl who will not bother me much, and not carry on with other fellows. It will be pleasant to come home to a welcome kiss, an evening meal, and I suppose she will need children to keep her at home, you know, and to make her act & think in a way of who and what she is and not run away, say, with oneof those dashing Polish pilots, since there are so many of the randy buggers causing all sorts of trouble, and not enough of them shot down by the bloody Nazis whom I don’t really care for now in spite of my slight flirtation with Mr Mosley, at a time when British patriots were perfectly free to form their own opinions and could have stopped this war. We should have fought against the French! I remember them from the last time, over on the Somme and in Flanders, greasy horrible little men in faded blue, and the locals behind the Front, selling watered beer and their poxy daughters. I will shortly arise and go with my gas mask, cape, and helmet, to bang away with my AA battery and hit nothing, letting shrapnel fall to kill or maim my fellow Londoners, and keep quiet about my German lessons.
