“Breakfast is coffee with white sliced bread, mark, and a sachet of prison-issue ‘orange spread’, which I pretend is real marmalade… 8:25 am: Just before work is scheduled to start at 8:30 am, I notice there’s a list on the Level 2 whiteboard of which laundry workers are required. Only 18 out of the 60 of us. No doubt due to the usual excuse of ‘staff shortages’, or maybe they’ve just run out of dirty linen to wash. Either way, I’m among the ‘lucky’ 42 who get a morning off.”

3. The Routine Makes You Numb.
