The Taste of Leather

"Before I could walk. Sunny day. I was sitting in my pram outside a shop on the left hand side of Spotland Road going in to Rochdale waiting for my mother to come back out,chewing the end of the leather strap on the harness holding me in. I can still taste it, sharp, a bit sweet and delicious."

"In my cot at the side of my parents' bed. They were both asleep and wouldn't wake up. I managed to scramble over the cot side and fall on my mother. That fixed them! (I only remembered this while writing about chewing the leather strap in my pram.)"
