I go downstairs to discuss an important business matter (ha ha ha).
Just as I reach the front counter, a man enters the building.
He is Irish and is looking for Covent Garden Fruit & Veg Market. He said he put SW8 into the sat nav and ended up here.
Here is Covent Garden WC2, in the sparkling, touristy, soulless heart of London.
The original Covent Garden Fruit & Veg Market was here. It was moved to Vauxhall in 1974.
I can't help him on his way because I've no idea where SW8 is or how to get there.
Besides, even if I did know it, I am the world's worst at giving directions.
Happy Birthday, Mr. DeVice!
