No idea who this is from, but I like that I dominate their thoughts. And they are clearly very poor. Not in the financial sense... ;-)
So, coming into work today, I'm approaching the 'Mormon crossing' at the start of London Bridge. They've popped up all around London in the last few months. A few of them stand either side of the road and give out leaflets. On the whole they are a jolly lot. I'll smile at them, they are amazed someone has smiled at them, and they smile back. It's all good. As long as someone isn't trying to convince me their way is the right way, each to their own :-)
Prior to the Mormon crossing at London Bridge was a juggler. He's there occasionally. Very good as well. Carries all of his gear on a bike, and there is a lot of gear, and he puts on a good show! The problem is I never have any change on me normally so I smile at him and walk past. Last night I found a pound coin on the bathroom floor. I suspect my Smaug like youngest son has dropped it and so I popped it into my pocket. So today I remembered I had a pound I could give to this very entertaining street performer.
I dug into my pocket and pulled out £1.05. I had an additional 5p lurking about in between my house keys! So I dropped the money into his hat on the floor while he is juggling some big old clubs, and he thanks me mid juggle!
I then carry on walking and hit the 'Mormon Crossing' I smile at the person and they give me a weak smile back and tell me 'You shouldn't encourage them'. My thoughts turns red, and my nom de plume, Angry Brown, threatens to rear his head but he doesn't. As I walk past they offer me a booklet on their religion. I smiled a bearded smile at her again and said 'I shan't. It's why I'm not taking one of your booklets'. I didn't look back and just walked on. Into about 10 or so people collecting for a meningitis charity and I had no spare change!
And the picture is me smiling. Sans beard of course. How many five year olds do you know with a beard ???
