Look, I can explain everything – it’s really very simple.
There I was, partaking of the last few drops of my mid-afternoon Americano at G&D’s and putting together some tentative thoughts on the relationship between black and white photography and medieval grisaille painting when the woman at the next table started discussing the Question of the Day with her small daughter.
Out of interest, I turned round to look at the question and told the woman what I thought the answer was, before packing up to leave. As I passed the counter I stopped briefly to check with the barista whether I’d got the right answer. Turns out that I had and would I like a free ice cream?
Well … what would you have done?
Does anybody know whether the raisins in Rum and Raisin ice cream count as one of your five-a-day?
