After so much tennis yesterday, I actually went to the supermarket before the end of that amazing gladiatorial semi-final between Isner and Anderson. Guess what? I was still going when I returned. It was a bonus. When I went to leave the supermarket the heavens had opened so I waited under the awning to see if would stop.
Naturally, I didn’t want to risk the electrics of the chair in such a heavy downfall.
What did make me laugh was the antics of Joe public.
Some were having a real laugh dancing through the growing puddles. One lady was walking calmly with a bag for life on her head. But as for the cowards? I wanted to shout “it’s only water. It’s not toxic. How long will it take to change your shirt and trousers?”
Well, l the rain eased off so I made my half-mile dash. It was still damn wet though and I was saturated. Hey ho! Such are life’s ironies. It took me twenty minutes to change.
Where’s my umbrella? Oh wait, I can’t hold one and use my joystick at the same time.
