I was in Dublin last week and I noted that I’d not seen any lost gloves, which contrasted with a great haul on my previous visit. My girlfriend pointed out that this might be due to the fact that spring had sprung and less people were likely to be wearing gloves, let alone wearing them. She probably then sighed on the inside and wondered what she’d done to deserve such a freak descending on her from London on a semi-regular basis.
Well, it seems that the lost glove season wasn’t totally done, as this evening I saw the specimen above on my walk to Oxford Circus tube. I have to say that the weather, whilst beautifully sunny, has been a bit brisk for the last couple of days so I can understand why someone would want such heavy-duty gloves on them.
I do wonder though whether this is likely to be the last lost glove till next winter and, if so, what pointless project I can start up in the meantime. I’d welcome any suggestions.
