They look around a lot.
They read other people's newspapers over their shoulders.
They read the overheard adverts again...and again...and again.
They'll read pretty much anything.
Which is why I've pinned my "I've found Adam" badge to my coat.
Because I know they'll read it.
And because I'll get a kick out of seeing the confused looks on their faces as they think "who is Adam and how and why did you find him?"
Have I joined a cult?
Has Jesus changed his name by deed poll?
Have the Counting Crows lost their lead singer?
Have I dug up the bones of the first man on earth?
Of course they'll all be too polite to ask. But if they do I'll say,
"You too can find Adam (my child). Just go to your local bookseller on 1st February and all will be revealed. Alternatively you could visit Caroline's blog"
Hmmm...maybe it would be better if I got little business cards printed out saying all of that...because people on the tube don't talk to each other and they'd think I was weirdo. Which I'm not (much).
p.s. Yes I know my coat collar is covered in fluff. Life's too short to pick it off!
