It's the kind of progress that happens when you wake up the next morning and have to take a shower, so you go to the bathroom, only to discover that this co-op has communal showers, and someone is already in there, and it's a boy. But you have to shower, so off go the clothes and into the shower you go, and this naked boy very politely introduces himself as he's soaping his hair, and he asks, 'What's your name?'
An exerpt from Penguin's Progress, which was even funnier with hand gestures when the above writer and I discussed this over lunch today. To include in the next version of Blogger, hand gestures.
