Anna and I made what's sort of turning into maybe our quad-annual sortie out of Kensington & Chelsea this time to check the Christmas lights, the Christmas window displays, and the general Christmas vibe of central London. (*) Neither did we neglect the cosy pubs and bars along the way. The only thing we didn't do was shop. (*) I toted the camera.
Me: Yeah. But it probably costs five hundred quid.
Anna (stepping inside, to shopkeeper): Excuse me, how much is this coat?
Shopkeeper (gliding gingerly over, then whispering): Two four zeven zero.
Me: Only off by a factor of five . . . Bye!
