Spot That Head!

On a brighter note, Son and I spotted well-known Italian referee Pierluigi Collina (left) today as we were nipping about on a bus.

Seeing celebrities was a daily occurrence when I worked in central London ‒ I used to take lunch in areas such as Carnaby Street so it made it all but inevitable. As Son pointed out, it's not the sort of thing you see down in this particular South-London backwater. In fact, it's the sort of area that anyone with any sense avoids.

Enough so that it made us a little sceptical at first but, then, as I pointed out to Son, he was sitting outside an Italian café drinking a small coffee that I felt safe in assuming was an espresso. Not convinced? Well, how about this? As we passed he stood and pointed in our direction in the manner that a referee would use to penalise an errant footballer ... I simply couldn't help imagining the red card in his other hand and the whistle between his lips.

How could you possibly doubt me?

He was obviously pointing in your direction because HE RECOGNIZED YOU! (Must be a blog reader )

Obviously! After all, I always travel on the bus with my son with my bare backside showing through the window

You sure it wasn't Michael Stipe

I didn't think it was but then I've never seen Michael Stipe pretending to be a referee ...
