The joy of youth means that you can get away with all sorts of mischief you'd get crucified for as an adult. Take the example of a particular partner at Berwin Leighton Paisner, who, when a wee lad of 16, took on a bet that he could consume a whole bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream before a long haul flight. Needless to say, the gullible eejit chundered all the way down his front.
This would have been a disaster had it not been for the fact that he was wearing a 1970s style ruffled shirt, the folds of which caught most of the damage. Tulkinghorn would like to say the chappy has changed since and matured, but that would be a lie.
