The Tesco Lady on Goodge Street

with one comment

If I’m ever feeling blue, to make myself feel better, I go to the Tesco on Goodge St to get IDed. I’m not *always* IDed, but I have found that if I wear my trainers and a Pac a Mac and ask for some Cutters Choice, generally someone several years my junior will want to see some identifying tender. Awesome. Last time, though, as I threw back my hood in delight, the woman changed her mind. That’s right. On seeing my Tuesday morning face she rejected my proffered driving license; I was clearly 47. And I should have been spending my time rubbing Vaseline into my fine lines to avoid them becoming the gaping crevices currently and clearly chopping through my face.

What. A. Bitch.

I bought my wares and limped out, my self-esteem knocking around my knees and walked immediately to Boots, ‘every little helps’ ringing in my ear. Something little was not going to help me. I bought three different eye treatments: something for fine lines; something for dark circles and something for the truly visually fucked that can’t be far off Polyfilla. If I don’t look like I’m seventeen in a fortnight’s time I will be irritated.

I’ve adjusted my diet, too, and ate eight of my five a day yesterday – nine if wine counts. I think you’ll agree it does. And then there’s the exercise. I’m enjoying that – running in particular. The only thing I really can’t abide is crunches because sitting up over and over again as a form of exercise cannot be in any way serious.

The point is, and God knows, I need one, if I am fit and healthy and if the Polyfilla works then I will no longer seek reassurance from the lady in Tesco which, frankly, is a little bit embarrassing now I come to write it down.

As you were people. There’s nothing to see here.

  1. Thing is Tesco policy is if you look under 25 you have to ask for ID. I hate that i know that but take it as a compliment 🙂
