Beware Skaters!

I thought I would share something that made me smile last night. I was on my way home to Walthamstow, after going to see a rather fine band called Tired Irie. They had been playing at the Betsy Trotwood, a venue smaller than my living room!


I had to take three buses for my journey from Farringdon, the 55, 257 and 97. Whilst on the second bus, I heard the driver’s radio crackle out a message. With things as they are in London these days, I now pay close attention to these messages.

It went something like this…” To all buses in the Trafalgar Square area beware. We have a number of reported…(you can imagine what I dreaded to hear next!)…skaters! They are skating in the road, all over the place. Try not to run them over!”

I smiled, as I pictured these skaters, and the bus drivers trying to do as they were being instructed. I hope these skaters, just like myself, had a great evening; and got home safely too.
