Get it while it’s hot! When the man in the Indian takeaway shakes your hand, when the guy in the fallafel place stops you in the street to say hi, when the Chinese boy not only knows your name but you also know what Universities he’s applying to and why, when you can’t recall the time you did a weekly shop, it’s definitely time to get back to the gym and get on a diet. (I must have thought that first a month ago; perhaps when passing by the pizza place with the police sign outside it – the one asking for witnesses to the murder of the delivery biker to come forward.)
