I particularly like the “Where should my hands go?” bit.
Well, I say “like” – I really mean “sympathise with”.
The main difference is that these days, with my 40-year-old hearing definitely fading a bit, it’s even worse. Half of the time I can’t even hear what people are saying at parties, pubs and clubs; I have to try to judge by facial expressions whether to smile, nod, or frown!
That can go horribly wrong, I don’t mind telling you.
