Professionally typecast

by Jim Webster
Originally published by on 28/03/2016

Crusher realised that it was lunchtime. His battered face and garb meant he ought to find a suitably sordid dive and drink ale with his professional associates, assuaging his hunger with a slice of meat pie of dubious provenance and a dab of pickle. During the course of this repast custom demanded at least one fight, and perhaps a knifing if it were a good day.

Which was a bit of a beggar because all he really wanted was a nice glass of mint tea and a couple of delicately flavoured cakes; drizzled with lemon and frosted with sugar icing.
