I was so proud of myself. I left the office after a glass or two of wine, having declined the opportunity to go to the pub, because I had a hot Morrisons date lined up. But the train was disorientating. Apart from the ManWithTheIceCreamHair there was no one in the entire carriage that I recognised. Everyone had gone home early or decided that 'Oh, go on, just one then' was a viable option.
PrissyConductor wound me up with his scrupulous insistence on meticulously concluding each ticketing transaction before opening any doors - what's wrong with the "I'll get back to you in a second" that everyone else employs?
Walking home from the station, the queue at the chip shop was the longest ever. Out of the door, across the pavement, onto the street. I looked for a sign saying "Last chips before the apocalypse" but there didn't seem to be one.
