Hetty's mine! By Luke Simmons

On summer break from university, I worked night shift at my uncle's factory and met some interesting characters. My favourite was a Vietnamese guy called Eric who was always smiling and great for an entertaining one-liner.

One day, I was unpacking boxes in one of the storage rooms with him and this lovely (old) lady called Hetty who was a look alike for Margaret Thatcher.

We were bustling away and then all of a sudden, the lights went out and we were stuck in sudden darkness. Hetty was dealing with the situation the best she could and said, "I'm operating by touch guys," to which Eric bellowed out, "HETTY'S MINE!".

I believe that life is a (relatively) short ride and that it's crucial to squeeze as many good times out of it as possible. I love travelling, music, reading, writing, all kinds o' sport, & my wife!
