wishful thinking, racing children, driving on the pavement

A 28-stone man on the Channel 4 news complains that he was made to leave a passenger plane, because he didn't fit any of the seats. He had been humiliated. "I was made to feel very small," he said.

Thee children carreer down a path in the Grove on those little scooters with tiny wheels. They hurtle into Grove Avenue and down towards the High Street managing to stop before they reach the main road. Just. What excitement!

Ascending Grove Hill Road I see a car coming towards me in the centre of the pavement. It is a remote controlled model car. Its owner, a few steps behind it, with the remote in his hand, is taking it for walk.
