Yesterday I was gibbering about the lovely young guy we met on train, handsome, charming, articulate, confident but understated. Turns out he’s a naval aviator, a pilot to you and me!
We had a good chat and a few laughs on the train to London, exchanged details as he’s hoping to visit Glasgow in the near future.
Today sitting on the train heading east towards Edinburgh, it’s bright but not sunny. I can see its pale yellow glimmer in front of me.
A young guy gets on and takes the seat across from me, sitting st the aisle facing west away from the sun.
He’s wearing dark aviator sun glasses which he keeps on his face for the whole journey.
I’m thinking, maybe he has a sight issue?
But when a text arrives he briefly takes them off so that he can look at his phone.
No sight issue, no black eye.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people wearing or doing what they like.
Guys wearing a dress .. Fine!
Guys wearing funny hats .. Fine!
Girls wearing short skirts .. Perfect!
The current trend for big hairy beards?
I don’t mind a woman with a beard! 🙂
Well I do .. But that wouldn’t be as funny!
But wearing shades in a dark train?
He couldn’t look less cool if he tried!
