of a very steep and full escalator at Holborn tube, a wheel on Jake's pushchair got stuck. I said "Oh shit"
and quickly and quietly did a sideways
off the escalator, pulling Jake & pushchair with me. While I was shuffling, there was a mini-pile up of bodies behind us, forcingpeopleevenclosertogetherthanbefore. And yet, the only exclamation I heard was "Oh".
As soon as we were out of the way, the bodies proceeded as before, a line of giant upright ants
I couldn't help myself and said out loud, "We're fine, thanks for asking." Nobody even looked. I suppose I should be grateful. It could have been worse and we could have been flattened, or lynched.
