Hopefully, it will all go swimmingly, and I’ll be able to tell you why I’m giddy as a kipper. Then, hopefully, you will be too. It’s not the sort of thing you would probably have expected to see me involved in, which makes it all the more exciting.
Actually, I’ve never seen a giddy kipper. Do kippers get giddy? And do they enjoy it?
