Choral Tuesday
Luce Smith, Features Writer
BIG ISSUE! photo by Michael Brace
I'm going to rename today as choral Tuesday.

Walking down the high street at rush hour, you can hear 'big isshhhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeewwwwwww' followed by the dulcet tones of 'free paaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyypa'. So funny! I want to do a bit of dj-ing with this, could be a top record hit and proceeds could go to the 'Lucy foundation Trust'. It would sound pretty good with a bit of a beat to it. Big big dum dum, isshhhhuewwwwwww dum dum, free, free, diggity dig, bum bum, paaaaaayyyyyypa scibbidy doo.... Yes, I will have words with DJ someone hot and famous and see what's possible.

I had to give someone a quick snide look, to save myself saying words. Sitting on the bench on the platform, trying to relax after a hectic day and the guy on the bench is rocking back 'n forth. It's ok for a few minutes, then it's blooming annoying to say the least. How do I tell some stranger to sit up straight and sit still? I need to work on my communication skills as he wins this time, as I get up and pretend I don't need a seat. Grrrrr. That's so annoyed Lucy!

I'm also annoyed as I joined a beginners' running group last week, and run number one, was in the sunshine, rain, and snow (all in 35 minutes!). Run number two was on the treadmill being the weekend and I can't tell you how much I hated every moment! But had no motivation to run solo outdoors. Run number three is tonight and I'm tired, and lost my running mojo. Help.

Get ya free payyyyyyyyyyper, evening pooooooooost, not sure how this week has happened, but I seem to have been relatively organised! I even got a weekly train pass. I also sat and watched a lame pigeon. Is that the correct terminology? Basically, the pigeon was holding its foot/leg/claw up off the pavement and hopping along. A horse would be classed as lame, as would a sheep or cow. But what about a pigeon? I almost put that it was limping, but doubt that would be correct!

I did an absolute Stirling superwoman job at the main station. I was going for my train, but the earlier train had been delayed, so was just pulling into the platform I was heading for. I decided to charge for it. I galloped down the staircase, across the platform, only to hear the 'beep beep beep beep' of the doors. The next bit was in slow motion. I strided out the last two steps and jumped into the train, with the doors closing slowly behind me. Phew! I made it! And dare I say, actually enjoyed the thrill? Haha! Even people already on the train looked marginally impressed. Won't ever be able to do that again so I was enjoying the moment.

Bigissuuuuuuuuuuuuuueeeeeeee please. No thanks. I should buy it one day as I've never read it, has anyone? Can you read it online? That would definitely defeat the object I know, but still!

I'm early for my connecting train, and sit on the bench. I'm sat on it on my own. No one is rocking it. No one is singing to me to buy a magazine, or take a free copy of a newspaper. I start rocking on the bench smiling. Haha, it's payback time :)
