Sometimes I am genuinely puzzled why odd people seem to gravitate towards me. Sometimes it's guite obvious. This website attracts more than my fair share of attention through its reasonable rankings on Google and the ridiculous array of unconnected things I choose to write about. With around half a million words on here, there's bound to be something to bring a nutter into contact with me.
According to my best information, the November 2nd issue of Micro Mart will feature one such random story. Best read than paraphrased here.
Over the weekend I had another strange request. There's no doubt that I had something in common with the requester, who wanted to talk about motorway bridges. Now I've gone on record and stated that I'm a fan of a particular bridge over the M1. Actually, I think it more counts as the M1/M62 link road, but you get the idea. I was also amused by a painting on a bridge over the M25 which reads 'Tracy I love you, marry me. Ed'. Great. These attributes of mine made me the sort of person who would react when someone got in touch asking for my help with a motorway bridge related idea.
To be honest, though, while bridges are amusing and have long made me wonder whether I might not be advised to talk about them in stand-up, I'm not that keen on the idea of actually going out and vandalising them for a laugh.
I declined the offer to be involved in a large scale bridge graffiti scheme.
