Rush rush rush

Why do people rush around on the London underground? I could understand it if it was a regional railway with a train every half-an-hour, there's a bit of a point to flapping along like a badly coordinated penguin to get onto the carriage before the door closes, but this is the tube - there's a train every two minutes. In life there is precious little which is really that split-second important: most forms of surgery, sex, olympic level athletics, certain diplomatic scenarios involving strict deadlines. So, London has a very high doctor-to-patient ratio or is over-sexed or a new sport, "the three mile commuter chase" has been invented or we're always precariously on the brink of war with someone or there's a lot of people out there who are taking their life far too seriously. I pride myself on my levels of being chilled when commuting, it is a talent the rest of the world should learn.

I have Thursday and Friday off. And I'm getting a cold. Growl.

stop being such a grizzle grump. The underground IS a sport. It's a race to see who can get to the next place first.
Tsk when men get a snuffle it's always the flu...aww I'm being mean. Keep warm and drink plenty (not not alcohol hunny)
