Overheard: Young buck on train, reading travel catalogue to his mates, spotted a “bargain”, but maybe doesn’t pay attention to the news much. “I really want to go to Fiji.”
Spotted: Distinguished gentleman sitting at al fresco cafe table. Remarkably large foreheard, like one of those Tintin professors from The Shooting Star who needs the extra space in his head for his over-sized brain.
Annoying: Going to all the trouble of turning over the page in a broadsheet newspaper — quite difficult under some circumstances — only to find a double page of ads. Particularly when it’s ads such as bottle shops or cars, which I have zero interest in.
