I've been ejected from the golf course management degree (even though I never hit a golf ball). It wasn't only the constant fear of being hit by a ball, it was all the fertilizer I inhaled from the greens. I'm now studying 'Pataphysics, the science of the particular, the science of 'laws governing exceptions'. I've swapped golf holes (green holes) for Black holes.

Postman To A Spoon-Bender
Burghley road SW19
backs onto The All England Club, home
of Wimbledon Tennis. For many years I used to live close by, and the local greengrocer told me, rumour had it, celebrity spoon-bender Uri Geller was renting this
pile (to run a workshop on psychology in tennis), and that he was going to bend a Wilson
aluminium T-2000 tennis racket (as made famous by Jimmy Connors) using the
power of thought. So I thought I’d bend Uri Geller’s lamppost. I was postman to a spoon-bender. Uri Geller:
Helen Keller, even she would have seen the irony.
