04:10: "Hi there, it's John in Control. Are you available to go to a trapped RTA in TinyTown?" I get up, get dressed in the dark, kiss Mrs RRD goodbye, and set off down the stairs. I suggest to myself, as I make my bleary-eyed way to the car, that in future I will pay much more attention to which way round I put my pants on, as I now have an industrial-sized wedgie!
I put my jumpsuit on and sit in the car, squirming uncomfortably, as I punch in the details to my Sat Nav.
04:14: "Hi there, it's John in Control. The trapped RTA is now out and walking around, with no injuries. I can stand you down. Sleep well." I take the key out of the ignition, take my jumpsuit off, stumble upstairs and climb back into bed, wondering how long it will be before sleep finds me again.
