My speech

For three months following my accident I couldn't even speak, let alone string a sentence together. I'd like to say that I remember, but clearly I don't however, apparently the very first word out of my mouth was the word Mum. From that day forward, I started to say more and more single words, each more blue than the last. That is until one day I must have taken everybody by surprise, by saying "do you think that the tractor driver, will get prosecuted for what he's done"? Or words to that effect. From that day forward, they put a whiteboard and a marker at the side of my hospital bed so that a record could be taken of each word I said.

I'm confident that it must have also come with an 18 certificate.
