I’m going to interrupt my stream of dodgy strategy talk for a quick aside.
I was idly glancing over someone’s shoulder on the bus today – bad habit, but I get bored – when a photo in his copy of Hello! caught my eye.
“Hey, that’s Adele!”
Cue strange glances.
Word of advice, when you’re reading magazines over someone’s shoulder – don’t shout in their ear. If you do, try turning your head away, chatting to yourself and pretending you’ve got a bluetooth headset in your other ear.
Eventually, he went back to his reading and I could go back to mine.
By now, most of the bus were looking at me.
And not in a good way.
But I didn’t care, I was on my feet, pointing at the magazine in open mouthed surprise.
This was the corner of the article which caught my attention:
That’s right, I wrestled the magazine away from him and ran giggling into the night.
Then had to wait for the next bus because it wasn’t my stop.
Sad, yes; but good publicity.
Getting a mention in a national mag, not jumping off at the wrong stop after tearing said magazine out of someone’s hand.
Or it would be good publicity if people actually read Hello! instead of just looking at the pictures.
I am ashamed of myself.
