If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


Real Financial Insecurity

Prostitute's postcard seen today in a phone box in King William Street:

  • A very conventional picture of a youngish woman in partial undress, and
  • A site: "London Bridge" -- in reality that would be far out in the Borough, but never mind...
All ordinary. But what struck me was the caption. It wasn't "Maid for Pleasure." It wasn't "New 19 YO Swedish." It wasn't even that perennial City favourite: "Fully Equipped Dungeon."

No. The caption was: "Kisses and Cuddles." If that isn't the clearest sign of financial calamity, I don't know what would be.

God bless her, though. It's wonderful to imagine that there's a living in snogging.
