Going back to this week in May 1980

Hitting the magic buttons, and slipping back exactly 27 years ago this week, as we go back to the time when I was a mischievous little bastard.  Friday 2nd May 1980 came on as a cool Autumn day, and it was the last day before the May holidays.  It was time to get back at those kids who annoyed me, and as they ran around the classrooms, my quick thinking mind said, "quick, quick, quick; turn the lock and slam the door, then they'll be locked in for two weeks".

Unfortunately, my fingers didn't have that same lightening fast speed, as my thumb got crushed in the door, flatter then a pancake, and ah!, hell, it was a few days at home, with my hand dangling in a bucket of hot water and dettol..... OUCH!!!!!!!  And musically, this is what we were listening to on the radio.....
