Radio: Regrets, I've had a few; most of all, the tuba

ONE LIFE doesn't seem enough. It would be interesting, wouldn't it, to have another go - to come back as a humming-bird, or a Norwegian, or a chap - even just to be born blonde, or sporty, or good at maths. However, given just a single shot at existence, the thing I really wish I'd tried is playing the tuba: this week, one superb radio programme rubbed salt into this regret.

The Diary of Emma D May; Things that go bong in the night

Sunday 12.01am: "Living with a smoker can kill you," says Ed, Tinky-Winky's new boyfriend, as if this is news. We know this. There was time when Dylan was so stoned that he set fire to sofa and lay back watching it burn, with disaster only averted when Anna woke up to find her hair on fire. "She's never had a fringe since," I explain to Ed, passing him an enormous cobra-length bong, legacy of Dylan's now-defunct relationship with the loaded Lady Camilla. Then there was the time when Dylan drove up the M4 the wrong way screaming at other terrified drivers that they were all lunatics. "Then there was the time that Emma... " Dylan starts in his own defence, but is interrupted by taking in huge lungful of pure grass smoke and then coughs nasty black bits everywhere. Ed looks alarmed. "Smoking kills," Dylan says, casually. Then he goes pale. "God! What if I'm, like, really dying?" he splutters. "God, I can't get my breath, can't breathe, my lungs are full of... black bits." Anna takes command. "Bong," she says, like a scary hard-nosed paramedic in Casualty asking for scissors. "Now, Dylan, INHALE!" she shouts, stuffing the end bit into his mouth and then lifting her finger off the hole at last minute so he fills up with smoke like a gas chamber. Dylan relaxes and starts to look sleepy- eyed. "Whooah!" he says. "Is that, like passive smoking? I just inhale and smoke fills me up? It's mega... "
