Not easy, but worth it

It was a dull day yesterday but I was greatly cheered by news from my friend Grumio, who is currently on holiday abroad with his beautiful wife, staying in a borrowed flat overlooking a city and its bay. Yesterday he emailed me a photo of a fireworks display which they had watched from their bed, and I replied:

“Fireworks in bed, eh? Ah, to be young again!”

His response was:

“…Yes, but it only lasted 5 minutes, I had to squint a bit and nearly put my back out, and it was tricky getting good pictures. Mind you, the banging could be heard across the bay and there was a round of applause from the crowd afterwards”

You can see why I value this man's friendship, can’t you?
