“Maybe it’s something they pump into airport lounges to keep the air clean, or the natural superhuman strength you develop when you know you’re about to have it very large in Spain for 10 days.

Doctor Tom Booker said: “I would normally advise blokes to drink responsibly in airports, but I’m going to Switzerland tomorrow, so fuck it.”
