Mate of mine books for us all to go to a comedy club in Bristol couple of weeks ago...I just knew the comedian was Irish but didn't look up any other info on him. After a few giggles about some stuff he talked about, he realised there was a connection between us. Turns out we went to school together.
In a random bar in Dallas...get talking to the (irish) bar manager, he says "yeah, I know two lads from your end of the world...they're living downtown, not far from here"...tells me their names, turns out they were guys I hung out with as a teenager.
Summer 1989, I'm in a DSS office in Ealing sorting myself out with a NI No. for a summer's work in London. Ask the person sat at the table with me (filling out the same form) about some question, turns out they're called "Darcy" as well..."fancy that" says I. This was before the days of numbered tickets...a while later, the person behind the counter calls out "darcy", me and the other guy stand up....as well as one other person in the office...there were only a dozen or so people in the office!!
