"It's Not Me!"
It seems wholly appropriate that after a 40-year school reunion with much catching up on what we've been doing (lawyers. accountants, a professor of pathology, property dealers and one FE lecturer - which would be me) I should revisit one of my all-time favourite films, Grosse Pointe Blank. Just finished watching it again, and it never grows stale.
But I should definitely have tried the "I'm a professional killer" line when faced with the what-have-you-been-up-to-since-we-left-school line. Maybe, like John Cusack in the film, I'd have found that people just passed over it with a "That's nice" or a "Growth industry!"
