In recognition of World AIDS day 1st December I wanted to feature an indispensable part of my daily equipment, this (RED)® Mophie Juice Pack Plus, a portion of proceeds from which go towards (RED)® for the ﬁght against AIDS.

Then, inexplicably, my girlfriend Sonia flung her arm in the air and knocked over her cranberry juice filled drink across the table towards me, ice cubes and all.
