I will not say too much about what happened for those who may experience it in the future. I do not want to give too much away. However, here are some amusing points you may find rather funny:
Things I now appreciate:
Smoking at will
Free access to toiletries
An alcoholic drink in cell every day
Cigs in cell for first 36 hours.
Not letting solitary break me, even when stripped.
Not being broken at all.
Not crying out after a hard hand tawsing.
Some high points:
Gov and his 'Man with no eyes impression' when we were a chain gang. Think Cool Hand Luke.
Being strip searched more than once by female officers.
Winding the Gov up by implying his birching was not hard enough.
The overall realistic atmosphere of the place.
The peace in solitary: never thought I would feel that way about it.
Finally, I would like to thank all involved in making this happened. You have made a dream come true and you know who you are. Love you all.
