Living in a large dirty city like London makes you a bit numb I have realized.
Or worse, makes you cold and hard.
Usually I try my best not to let it get to me, but the sad truth is that it probably has effected me in areas I'm not even aware of yet.
A thing like public urination for instance. Eww! Yes. But is so common that I don't even pay attention anymore. And no, I might add that it's not that drunken need-to-go-to-the-bathroom-now type of thing. We are talking about people just whipping out their penises anywhere at any time of the day.Anywhere!
Yesterday I was on my way home from the gym and this guy was taking a leak just next to the sidewalk.
And that brings me to the second thing. Just minutes after this I saw two guys having sex in the street. Because apparently we city folk are so numb that we can't even bother to find a place anymore. The street is our bed. I just reflected that the guys had sex and then just carried on walking next to them. Eww.
The streets lead me to the next thing. Jesus Christ, the city of London is so dirty. Never before in my life have I seen so much food on the streets of any city. A whole fried chicken on the side of the road anyone? And that brings me of course to one of the most hideous things ever. Animals living in London. I used to live in a terrace house and I had foxes going through my rubbish! EWW! And they were so used to getting what they wanted that they didn't even care about getting scared if you tried to do anything about it. Rats everywhere let me tell you. And flying rats, pigeons.
They could be the sole reason not to live in a city. And here they are cannibals. Remember the fried chicken?
People jerking off in the tube. Terrorists who blow up the tube.
London has a great deal to offer, but sometimes I think I'm mad to live here with all that dirt instead of having a country side place and try not to think about how much I love late night shopping with a big cup of skinny decaf soya latte frappuccino in a takeaway cup.
I usually buy my basic black T-shirts in Top Shop and since of last week so does Michael Jackson. Spooky.
