* WARNING: MAY CAUSE SEVERE ICKINESS FOR WHICH I APOLOGISE PROFUSELY*
I thought I had grown immune to when people decide to finish off their morning toilette on the train –from those who think nothing of putting their make up on or brushing their hair (and that includes cleaning their hairbrush) or even those who decide to paint their nails in full view of everyone.
I thought I had mastered the art of ignoring my fellow commuters who think nothing of using the train carriage as an extension of their bathroom.
I thought I had mastered the Londoner’s persona of insularity to perfection but what happened yesterday, bloggie friends was even too much for me.
A very normal middle-aged woman – normally dressed – looking normal with one head, hair, limbs…
… took out her nail clippers and begun to clip not only her fingernails – oh no – but… HER TOE NAILS as well.
Clip, clip, clip.
I only managed to keep my revulsion at bay by telling myself to remember this feeling – this moment – as I watched her – if ever I decide to try my hand at horror story writing.

Have a pristine Monday everyone!
