Was sitting on the gate (wooden swing fence thing) that leads into the east side of the square at Covent Gardens waiting for Craig who had gone to get beers. A truck needed to get out so I got booted off the gate.

So I'm then standing outside Belushi's, waiting for Craig and quite obviously checking the legs of an cute girl in a short skirt (I love summer, yes I do, yes I do). The girl turns to me, smiles politely, and says You're about to get hit by a truck.

I blushed and mumbled something incoherent, and moved off the road.

i.e. the truck that was getting through the gate that I had just moved for in the first place. I'm such an idiot.

I’ve always found that being mashed into jam by a juggernaut is always a good trick to impress the ladies.

Well this time I didn’t actually injure myself. I’ve hurt both my neck and my head looking at girls.

I’m sure there is actually a lesson in here somewhere. Perhaps beyond the fact I’m an idiot, but I can’t quite place my finger on it.

If I were you, I wouldn’t try - you might hurt your finger.

Ouch. I’ve only ever managed to walk into a door, which is hardly as impressive as facing the danger of a speeding truck to win someone’s attention. Clearly, I have much to learn. :)

I don’t think I was so much trying to win her attention as just check out her legs. I’m to shy to talk to girls so I’m just a dodgy perve instead.

I think there is another lesson in that too.

“checking the legs of an cute girl in a short skirt (I love summer, yes I do, yes I do)” — you and Topper both :)

Was nice of her to warn you of your impending maiming. Thoughtful and nice legs.

A friend of mine fell off a mountain path once as he turned around to stare at the first bird we’d seen in 12 days. The fact she was wearing a tight, wet, white see-through top didn’t help. We managed to grab the top of his ruck sac as his feet dangled over the edge. PS - you are allowed to talk to girls as well as oggle them. Just none called Kimberley
