20110307 Helmet Man 150x150 Some say...

Remember I wrote about the invisible man some time ago?  It was an article in which I mentioned my colleague, who rides a motorbike.  I was chatting to him about work-related issues the other day and noticed his helmet on the window sill with his gloves wedged inside and poking out of the “face bit” – you know the hole with the visor.  Oh, I don’t know what that’s called, as I ride a bike, but see for yourself.  The result is a rather interesting gorilla-like face with a cheesy grin, a big speckled nose and a bit of a squint.  The “hair” reminds me of Dr Zoidberg’s top lip.

 Said colleague sits behind me and we share a window with a blind, which we tend to roll up.  This means we get natural daylight (Well duh!), but we also get to see what happens outside, which can be quite interesting at times.

 Quite often we’ll see a guy who jogs everywhere and always seems to have loads of carrier bags or balloons and a Union Jack.  He waves, shouts and sings at people as he runs past and I’m told he is a bit of a local celebrity.  I’ve also been told he survived a pretty serious illness, which is why he is so happy.  Fair play to the guy and apparently he’s been pictured with various celebrities running the New York marathon.  If all the above sounds a little bit like the introduction to The Stig (“Some say…”) then I guess that links us back to the image of the helmet.

There are plenty of other interesting things passing by our window and I will write about those in a future post.  It’s easy to get distracted sometimes and maybe the face on the window sill serves to tell us to get back to work.  Back to work is where I will be tomorrow, fully rested and raring to go.  A short four-day week beckons but it is set to be a busy one and I am dreading the state of my inbox tomorrow…
