This week’s anonymous writer works in campus security, worlds apart from the academics on ‘Planet Corduroy’
“Bombs have been put in place in buildings on the campus,” read the email. “They will explode later today. Do NOT ignore this warning!”
It’s not the weirdest message we’ve had in the security office – those would be the vice-chancellor’s dinner menus we get copied into. Herb-crusted fillet of sustainable pollock on a provencal bean stew. Medallions of spiced monkfish with braised shredded fennel. Other things I can’t pronounce, let alone imagine swallowing.
