Captain Castlereagh

As I blithely skipped down Castlereagh Street returning from Take a Break coffee lounge, armed with a bacon and egg sanger, a cup of coffee and not a whiff of ambition, a man stopped directly in front of me, really close in a rather menacing fashion, and demanded "give me all your money and your hugs and kisses too."

And no he wasn't about 60, rotund and long bearded but i must say that while I felt a bit nervy and taken aback I was kind of taken with the ZZ Top tribute within the demand. I explained I didn't have any moolah on me, had just spent it on the sanger, stepped aside for the personal space was kind of cramped, and advised that I only had the sandwich and coffee to give and was then called a "f***%$ d%g". A rollercoaster of an exchange, charming but nevertheless a rollercoaster.

I walked as fast as my pins could take me, yes, i do have legs and I know how to use them, spilling the coffee down my front.

You make a smug posting the day before and look what happens. Oh bad Carmen you've done it again.
