quote In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn’t cope with, and that terrible listlessness that starts to set in about 2:55, when you know you’ve taken all the baths that you can usefully take that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the newspaper you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o’clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

quote

Ford was very kind - he gave the barman another five pound note and told him to keep the change. The barman looked at it and then looked at Ford. He suddenly shivered: he experienced a momentary sensation that he didn’t understand because no one on Earth had ever experienced it before. In moments of great stress, every life form that exists gives out a tiny subliminal signal. This signal simply communicates an exact and almost pathetic sense of how far that being is from the place if his birth. On Earth it is never possible to be farther than sixteen thousand miles from your birthplace, which really isn’t very far, so such signals are too minute to be noticed. Ford Prefect was at this moment under great stress, and he was born six hundred light years away in the near vicinity of Betelgeuse.

The barman reeled for a moment, hit by a shocking, incomprehensible sense of distance. He didn’t know what it meant, but he looked at Ford Prefect with a new sense if respect, almost awe.

Short Story

From Eagle and Boys World, February 27, 1965

“‘London Transport Lost Property Office’ - this is it,” said Mr. Smith, looking in at the window. As he went in, he tripped over the little step and almost crashed through the glass door. 
"That could be dangerous - I must remember it when I go out," he muttered. 

"Can I help you?" asked the lost-property officer. 
"Yes, I lost something on the 86 bus yesterday." 
"Well, what was it you lost?" asked the officer. 
"I’m afraid I can’t remember," said Mr. Smith. 
"Well, I can’t help you, then," said the exasperated officer. 
"Was anything found on the bus?" asked Mr. Smith. 
"I’m afraid not, but can you remember anything about this thing?" said the officer, desperately trying to be helpful. 
"Yes, I can remember that it was a very bad - whatever-it-was." 
"Anything else?" 
"Ah, yes, now I come to think of it, it was something like a sieve," said Mr. Smith, and he put his elbow on the
highly-polished counter and rested his chin on his hands.
Suddenly, his chin met the counter with a resounding crack. But before the officer could assist him up, Mr. Smith jumped triumphantly into the air. 
"Thank you very much," he said. 
"What for?" said the officer. 
"I’ve found it," said Mr. Smith. 
"Found what?" 
"My memory!" said Mr. Smith, and he turned round, tripped over the step and smashed through the glass door! 

D. N. Adams (12), Brentwood, Essex.
