At 7.45am on any weekday morning, Big Grey Man (see Gym Buddies) is usually queuing for a coffee at the gym – and attempting to make inane talk with me.
So imagine my shock when at 7.45am, I joined the queue at my local Caffe Nero (several miles from the gym) and who should be lurking ahead of me but… Big Grey Man, seemingly bigger and greyer than ever.
He appeared completely unfazed by this random coincidence, simply beaming moronically at me and making small talk about the weather.
Same time, same coffee queue, completely different location.
I’m a little scared.
