Girl By The Wall

There was a girl by the wall across the road from where I and my colleague were sitting in a little bit of shade while he ate his lunch today. She looked cool. Not in the temperature sense since there was none of that going on (it's been mighty hot is what I'm trying to say here) but rather in the in-her-own-world, don't-care-about-anything sense.

I wanted to take a picture of her but there were a few things stopping me: firstly, I didn't want to upset her cool; next, I don't really do that whole shooting people while they're looking at me schtick; finally, girls are dangerous.

However, a bus that briefly pulled up and blocked the view endowed me with a sudden sense of bravery. As it moves off, I thought, I shall snap a shot quickly and she'll never realise! And even if she does… well… how much harm can a girl really do anyway?

And that's how I got this picture and spent twenty minutes of lunch running away and fending off an attack with a handbag. I think she had a brick in it. What was she carrying a brick for?
