The Pseudonym That Is Julian Race! ©Julian Race 18/9/2020
It all started six decades and nine months ago. My Mother and Father were on a date night where a certain amount of alcohol was involved. Suffice to say a little friskiness blended itself into the evening and on the way home, friskiness turned into lust which turned into frenzy. I don’t know who dragged who down the side alley between the terraced houses but clothes were pulled aside, suspender belts twanged (it was the 1950’s) and my Father, to my Mother’s delight performed his stand up routine for want of a better phrase or maybe better known as a knee trembler if this is not too crude a description. They were both reaching their peak at maximum frenzy when torchlight flashed over them both and a voice echoed down the alleyway “FREEZE”. Being law abiding, they stopped mid stroke and froze. Unfortunately, they had both reached their peak in the frozen position and they both finished although motionless. After assuring the policeman that my mother had something in her eye and everything was quite above board, the policeman bid them a good night. The policeman caused me to be born and named Julian Race – So there it is!
