^^ Always wanted to try out an 'in motion' shot... how cool am I?
Fur, flats & leather (no make-up and unruly hair) ... not the most inspiring of outfits, but definitely called for on a chilly trip to Portobello market.
I spent the morning catching up with my Har-Mar Superstar lookalike and belt stall friend Illyas. As Illyas told me not to look at one of his belts because it was 'cheap' I wondered if he had finished Business school. I shouted 'Police' when a crazy sauce tried to steal costume jewellery from Helen the ring seller (I mean if it was real gold I would understand).
I ran into a (non recognisably hot) ex. Right.
Him: Hi, are you Jackie?
Me: Yes (as in yes, thank you)
Him: Don't you recognise me...?
Him: It's me, Ian * looks puzzled
Me: Oh, of course, how are you, you look great?
Him: Fine. Yes fine thanks. Ok, bye.
As he sped of sheepishly, I slapped myself for:
1. Not being more tactful.
2. Not being more tactful and getting his number.
3. Being cursed. Because in the grand scope of the universe, why must I be the only human being that runs into an ex who looks better than he did before?
