I’ve become a pathological wanker.
Of all the things I thought I’d achieve during lockdown – start writing a novel, learn how to knit, finally watch Breaking Bad – wanking was not the thing I thought I’d become so skilled in. I live in a house with two women I’ve known my whole life and, in some warped way, by week three we became like Lisbon sisters in The Virgin Suicides.
