Death at Tottenham Court Road, Part 2.
People tell me I've got a common face. I didn't quite believe them until today.
I was walking towards KFC to get some dinner. So I plugged in my Ipod and walked. And walked. And walked. And walked. And walked.
I was crossing the pedestrian at Tottenham Court Road when some BLOKE grabbed me on the back and jumped on me.
FUCK, I told myself.. I WILL BE ROBBED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT!!!!!!!!
(fear didn't overwhelm me because I barely had 6 quid in my wallet...)
Anyway, I am not the screaming type, so it was a silent affair. But I was carrying a 70kg man on my back, so I had to improvise and fall to the ground before my spine cracks. Strangely though, there wasn't much violence.....so I thought, maybe this could be a long lost friend who had decided to stalk and surprise me......
After managing to rid him off my back, my attacker was a bespectacled boy with a BARCELONA FC strip on.
We both looked at each other in HORROR.
HE THOUGHT I WAS HIS GIRLFRIEND.
He was so apologetic. I don't blame him, bet he must be shit embarassed. I resumed my journey to KFC and limped home after that. Stupid accident got me bruises.
Let's be optimistic, at least I was physically LOVED for 10 seconds...
So much pain for something I was desperately lacking for the past 2 weeks.
** Back to the 'common face' theory: this is not the first time I've been mistaken for some other idiot. Every 2 outta 5 friends claimed that they've spotted my identical twin somewhere in this world, and every 3 outta 5 people I meet tell me they've seen me somewhere before.
Not that I am FAMOUS, ( altho' I madly wish I am for the right reasons...) it is just that I resemble an unfortunate percentage of the world's population so I may opt for EXTREME MAKEOVER to gain some individuality.
