  1. I just read this whilst eating an apple and promptly choked on reading #25 as I have witnessed many an old ‘un eating more than their own body weight in food.

    My uncle used to insist that walking across gratings in the pavement would ensure I would go through and be sliced into chips (a variation on ‘the dragon will come out of the pavement cracks and eat you’, I suppose). It took me a long time to get rid of this fear and be able to walk across gratings or even reinforced glass set into pavements. Why anyone needed a window in a pavement, I’ve never been able to figure out…?

    1. Oh God yes, I hate walking over those little glass bricks in the pavement. i know the reason for them is to let some natural light into basement rooms, but really – they shouldn’t be walked on, it’s just WRONG!

I love comments and will generally answer any that are left - so please do leave one!
