Googlemaps story by RTJ

  1. 1. I was flaneuring down St Albans Market Street on Google Street View whilst consulting an oldLondon A-Z of Muswell Hill, figuring that as they were both slightly sloany Middle Class areas onewas as as good as the other... I popped into the Pound shop though it was actually the Apple Storeand found that all they were selling were apps - all a pound, but the kind of apps youd get in apound shop, like one to remind you when to take your tablets, or the one that pours liquid like outof a can, one that acts like a Kit Kats wrapper when you slide your finger down the foil in themiddle and a bag of shit crisps you can crush with your finger, all for one pound. And yet, I foundthat although they were virtual I somehow felt less hungry. I left the online pound shop and blurredup the road towards the ONeils when, as it depixellated I heard someone ask me for a light. I swunground to face East, to face a man in a puffer jacket with a blurry face. I said sure, and used the flameapp on my iphone to shine a light in his face. Inevitably he then asked, have you got a fag as well?Its been a while since I fell for that one, but I gave him one. I should give up, Im coughing somuch, I joked. Never mind, I havent actually got anywhere to put this fag, what with my facebeing a blur, he replied... Nice weather were having, I said - I mean, nice weather we were havingwhen the Google van came round.
