deep and blue
A friend emailed me to tell me that she saw him in Altrincham tescos on sunday. He was down the xmas biscuit/chocolate aisle. He was with a blonde woman of similar age - Jackie, his sis? He was holding a basket while she filled it with stuff, neither of them speaking. He was looking at the floor, doing that awkward head tilt of his. Immaculately dressed - blue jeans, nice shiny shoes, dark jacket, dark scarf, flat cap, canvas graffiti-patterned shoulder bag for his shopping. Said friend was too nervous to talk to him.
