Why I wear lots of make-up when I'm shopping
the local club scene
shoes with high-heels
However, people advertising the following thrust their leaflets into my hands, coming up really close to do so just in case I can't manage the two yards to where they are:
Saga holidays for the over 50s
exercise classes (gentle)
clothes made of nylon
Today, in town, I rebelled. A girl was giving out leaflets for a local dance centre which is holding free classes. She walked straight past me and was giving out a leaflet to someone younger, fitter and leaner, when I tapped on the shoulder and said, 'Excuse me, but could I have one of those?' She did give me a leaflet, but the look she gave me said something like, 'She probably wants it to pack her shoe with some folded up paper now that her legs are uneven due to an arthritic condition'.
