Before Blogger’s Block kicked in, way back when I was a regular contributor to this blog, I wrote an occasional column with extracts from my notebook.
Here’s a couple of entries from the day before yesterday.
At the gym, the guy sitting next to me beside the pool stared for a good while at my toenails before catching my eye and asking:
‘Are you transgendered?’
I told him no, and that it was just nail varnish.
Later, in a thrift shop I overheard the assistant at the till ask a customer if she wanted a bag.
‘No,’ I’ve brought my own,’ the customer replied. ‘We have to stop this environment.’
