Yes droogs. Just a quick one. Not much to report as, well, nothing's happened. I just want to share with you something that happened to me in a clothes shop today in NYC. So… I'm out shopping. Not looking for anything in particular. Just killing time. Enjoying the weather. (Very pleasant. Almost spring-like.) I'm in some shop or other not showing much interest in the merchandise and the usual scenario starts to unfold. You know the one? Shop assistant: "Hi… Can I help you with anything today?" Me: "Erm… No thanks… I'm just looking." (SO FAR, SO GOOD.) Shop assistant: “Are you looking for anything in particular… A jacket? Some jeans? A sweater?” Me: "… No thanks… I'm just looking." Shop assistant: "How about these sneakers? These are really cool." Me: "………" (Just a little stare.) Shop assistant: "What size are you?" Me: "40, if you must know." Shop assistant: "Great, I'll go get you a pair." Now at this point I would ordinarily wait 'til this idiot had wafted behind the curtain and leg it, but for some unknown reason I sat on a little leather stool and waited… and waited. Just as I'm about to walk out he re-appears box in hand. Shop assistant: "Here you go." Me: "Thanks." So, as luck would have it, they were too big. (Are my bastard feet shrinking now??) Me: "Sorry mate, they're too big." Shop assistant: "What? Really? The 40 is too big? Really?" Me: "Really." Then - with a straight face (and I'm not joking) - he said this... "You know… Baggy shoes are very popular right now." !!!!!!!!!!! Me: "………" (Just a little stare.) UN-FUCKIN-BELIEVABLE. Now… I'm gonna be out of the game until Wednesday / Thursday. Some of my mates are in town and it's probably gonna get pretty messy. In a bit. GD.
