As I was walking past St Paul's church an elderly lady grabbed my arm and asked 'are you going straight?'. I responded 'yes' as politely as a I could wondering where her ambiguous question was leading. She then said to me 'you must go straight home and have a shave'. Okay I was sporting my 'designer stubble' look so I guess I see her point. Then she said 'have a glass of water, have some food, read some versus from the bible and go to bed.' Sound advice I suppose ;)
