I went to a party in Clapham tonight for Laura’s birthday. I travelled home with my friend Emma in a black cab. We dropped her off first and headed for the lair. As we pulled up, the driver said, “Exorcism would cure you.” I’ve already given this remedy some thought because it’s come up before, and we talked for a while about his belief that I’m possessed.
I tried pointing out some of the problems with his arguments, but gave up after he said that if I didn’t have an exorcism the evil spirit would get worse and I’d end up with cerebral palsy.
