Randomness in the Western Suburbs 

As I walked home from the shops today, I started when an elderly man behind his brick wall said Sorry. I don't mean he apologised for startling me, I mean he said Sorry and then I noticed him and jumped.

So I said, Sorry, I didn't see you there!

Then he said, Can I tell you a short story I heard at the bowling club today?

And of course I said Yes.

The story went:

A first year medical student thought that terminal illness is something you get at the airport.

I said, Ohh, that's a good one! Seeya!

I'm not sure if this is more or less random than the guy I followed up this same wide and tree-lined street. Black business pants, white long-sleeved shirt, balding - I didn't notice him until he turned to caw back at a nearby crow.

Maybe I should be more superstitious.

Ahhh, brilliant stuff!

Well done on the collecting by the way, excellent! And good luck this friday, ha ha!
 
Thanks Simone! I'll be ready for anything by Friday. :-)
