My usual shock absorbers (hands and knees) took most of the force, but were assisted by my nose and mouth. Onlookers must have thought I was so pleased to finally be starting work that I was kissing the tarmac. As pleased I am to be part of the company, the town and these premises, I felt no such papal urges.
