This afternoon my girlfriend and I ended up taking my little nephew for a walk (well, we walked, he sat in the pram) around Highgate Woods. It was very pleasant and leafy and middle-class. We managed to successfully get him to chase balls and sit on the swings without damaging him. Fortunately, he didn’t do a poo as neither of us much fancied changing a nappy.
On the outskirts of the wood, sitting on a bench, wearing a chequered shirt and talking on his mobile was Ben Wishaw, star of Perfume, I’m Not There, Criminal Justice and Nathan Barley. I would have said hello to him (and triggered an awkward conversation in which I expected to be treated as an equal, rather than some random stranger) but as I said, he was on the phone. Maybe he wasn’t really on the phone, but didn’t want to talk to me. Yes, that would make sense.
Oh, and for those of you with Facebook, you can now be a fan of themanwhofellasleep on there. It’s magical.
