[AUDIO FADE IN, MR. REGULAR, DULL TONE:] *Looking at empty garage* I’m at my parents’ house…no car. *Looking at some pole on wall* I don’t have a car for a week. *Batting post-it notes on a string* Got a lot of time to kill… *Looking at a tennis racket holder* Pete Sampras Grand Slam, with ‘Soft-Shock’ system, number one in tennis. *Getting a can of V8 Vegetable Juice* V8…100% vegetable juice from concentrate with added ingredients. *Opens microwave* This is all very nice, but I miss my apartment. *Looking at floor* I miss my 1970s carpet. *Climbing stairs previously seen in first review* GOT A LOT OF TIME TO KILL… *Looking at Mr. Regular’s bags* It feels like I’m living in a hotel. *Looking at Mr. Regular’s camera bag* No car. *Looking at drumsticks* No car. *Looking at vintage exercise bike* No car. *On the exercise bike* NO CAR! *Zoomed into speedometer* UUUGH! *Reading from ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’* The gang made forays into the gardens of old maids… or went down to the castle and fought a battle on the shaggy weedgrown rocks, coming home after it… weary… stragglers with the stale odours of … foreshore in their nostrils… and the rank oils of the seawrack upon their hands and in their hair. Aubrey and Stephen had a common milkman and often they drove out in the milkcar… to Carrickmines where the cows were at grass. While the men were milking the BOYS- *Down in the basement* Idle hands are the Devil’s playground! *Looking at old RC boat resting on a paint can* This is a 1980s Seaslammer electric toy boat. *Looking at internals of boat, battery acid everywhere* It is powered by twin-electric motors made by a small child in INDONESIA. *Looking at underside of boat, battery acid all over the back* It is able to transverse the length of a small swimming pool without falling out of range. *Looking at reassembled boat, opening battery hatch* It is powered by three AAs, which get shorted out when water splashes inside the toy. *Looking generally at the basement* NO CAR. *Mr. Regular pedals on the exercise bike, wearing a helmet*
