Girl on train 

Look, I'm sorry to bang on about this make-up on trains business but I after this morning's ride to work I need to say something.

There was a girl sitting opposite me who was putting on make-up for the whole journey. Now, it's not a long ride into London from Orpington; it's just over half an hour but I think it's a bit extreme to be painting your face for that amount of time.

I think what was the most tragic thing about this girl was not that she was putting on make-up for half an hour but that when she'd finished she looked at least 10 years older (do girls really want to do that?) and a hell of a lot worse than when she'd started.

What was also extremely sad was that she caught me watching (I was fascinated - I didn't know what she was going to paint next) and I think she thought I was interested in her. Wrong tree, wrong forest.
