|Since several people have asked:-
If I added you as a friend, I'm the mostly-anonymous face of someone you know already. This journal is for things I don't want to post under my own name.
If you /really/ need to know (and if you do, that's fair enough), say so and I'll mail you or something.
I was walking home from school one day. Ahead of me were two youngish
women, talking to each other. One looked back at me, then the other;
the first then walked away while the second turned round and walked
back towards me.
"Do you want to come home with me?" she said. She was wearing a
purple hat, a long skirt and and carried a parasol. I was surprised
and said "no!" in a slightly outraged tone of voice. I turned to
cross the road, but had to wait as there was a car coming.
There was an old lady walking up from behind me. "Is that your mum?"
asked the woman in the hat. I didn't say anything, but crossed the
road. I felt nervous.
I went round the other side of the block from usual. I looked behind
me but she didn't seem to be following. But when I went round the
corner she was the ahead of me, walking away. She continued a couple
of hundred yards ahead for much of my route home. I made sure I
didn't catch up, and she turned off the route before I reached home.
I still wonder what she wanted.
