Reflected glory

It’s one of those strange things about my life that I seem to be surrounded by famous people. I don’t know if anyone else has the same curious feeling, but it is a bit of a shock to turn a corner and find yourself face-to-face with Boris Yeltsin.

A few days ago I sat in a train diagonally opposite Paris Hilton, and today I was served a cup of coffee by Amy Winehouse, an experience that was bizarre on so many levels, and slightly disconcerting as well (I wasn’t sure if she was going to break out into song or break down in tears).

Knowing my luck, then, I shall be admitted to hospital in an emergency one of these days, and be operated on by Homer Simpson.
