Oddities on the Strand

A couple of things have taken me by surprise on the Strand of late.

The other lunchtime, a lady came up to me seemingly at random to ask: "Have you ever played ping-pong?"

I’m not sure why, but I lied and responded "no". To which, she asked whether I’d like to play. Again, I responded "no".

Today, two teenage girls walking behind me were attempting to sing Oasis’ Don’t Look Back In Anger in two-part harmony. It wasn’t tortuous, but it wasn’t good. And it grated against the grit of the original.
