John's words were wavy and ghostlike but just real enough to pull me from my afternoon nap. "I need you Tristy! I need you Tristy!"

When I was fully awake he stared at me and said it again - only now it wasn't quite what I had first thought.  John wasn't saying "I need YOU Tristy!" rather, "I need A Tristy!" I looked at him puzzled, half smiling.
"I need a Tristy! I really fucking need a Tristy!" he strained, now with a slight grimace of pain across his face.
"Well, I'm here,' I said "There's only one of me!"
"NO! I NEED A TRISTY! Quick, before I Spencer my pants!"
It took a while but finally I got it. Once again the man I love had found a way to show his utter contempt for my very existence. In each  dirty sentence my name found itself standing in for the word "shit":

"I'm fucking busting for a Tristy!"or "That fucking dog Tristy'd up the yard!" even "Tristy Spencer happens!"

I just sat there dejected as John rattled off as many Tristy-filled sentences as he could think of. Each time he came up with a new one he'd laugh and repeat it over and over, asking if I'd heard it.

Oh, let him laugh, I thought... let him have his moment. I just hope he reserves a few laughs for when the real Tristy Spencer is running down his legs and filling up his shoes - I imagine that'd be pretty funny too.

Cheap jam sponge or something a little more exciting? How will Mr Spencer celebrate his 32nd year in hell?

Did Tristram accidently pick up a REAL bargain?

Scrap metal or has John been 'tagged'. Is Tristram Spencer really the only fated man in town?

Will Tristram finally be brought to account for his love of Babs? And: is 25 years hard labour enough?

Is there still some hope for the fated Mr Spencer?
