‘A girl who collected her boyfriend’s semen in a plastic cup, which she kept under her bed.’

‘Three vegan Aussie lads told me not to go in the “LSD fridge”.’

‘My gay flatmate giving a blow job to his “straight” friend at the kitchen table one night.’

‘A crazy French girl put drawing pins inside the oven gloves as a farewell gift.’

‘My live-in landlady presented me with the ashes of her dead cat in a miniature coffin.’

‘My male housemate couldn’t explain why my lost bra turned up in the back of one of his drawers – complete with makeshift plastic-bag padding.’

‘My housemate brought home a few pheasants he claimed to have shot. They still had shop tags on their feet.’

‘The man who greeted each morning in a waistcoat and Y-fronts, with a large G&T and the words: “It’s always six o’clock somewhere in the Empire!” No, he wasn’t called Boris.’
