“…And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself, and curse my fate…”
So who should nip onto my carriage of the train last night and sit directly behind me? Why it’s Loud Woman and a friend of hers. Sounded like they had been for dinner and some wine. Well that’s all I could guess during the sonic battering my eardrums took.
And, having left the house all of two minutes later than normal, who should I find myself walking behind on the way up the station platform this morning… why look everybody, it’s Sauntering Woman.
I am cursed.
P.S. Despite claims to the contrary, Loud Woman is not Gert – although I was a tad worried when she got on the train last night.. Loud Woman that is, I wouldn’t really expect Gert to get on my local train…
