Furry Tongue

251 pages4 hours


Furry Tongue is the phenomenon of having a crusty mouth the day after a drinking session. I experienced this sensation on a regular basis while travelling round the world in 2003, and have now, rather foolishly, decided to publish a summary of the whole sordid affair. Most of it is based on reality, or at least the reality that I can remember. It contains frequent bad language and poor life choices, which makes it too inaccurate to be a travel book, not descriptive enough to be a guide book, nor quite funny enough to be a comedy. Perhaps it's a combination of all three - a 'tra-g-edy'. Hmm...

Written over the course of more than a decade, I can honestly say that the key people it describes have changed, grown and now taken on responsibility beyond the grasp of our tiny, little, self centered minds since these antics occurred. That's not to say that there is any regret attached to it, indeed, it has shaped our very lives to this day, and will continue to do so. Yes, it was a shame that we accidentally killed a wild animal, and If I had my time again, I wouldn't let our own landlord break into the house and rob us. These are the experiences that shape us though, and more specifically, these are just a couple of the exact experiences that are described within this book.

If you have a taste for the tasteless, a curiosity for adventures in foreign lands, a forgiving disposition toward writing devoid of detail or craft, and a love of euphemisms, then this book will be right up your alley.
