…is about things that get me thinking, screaming, or bouncing around with joy.
It was inspired when a rat ran at me on a dark, wet street and clung to my leg. Completely freaked out, I looked closer and my rat turned into a leaf. A London Plane leaf.
It wasn’t the first time one of those little buggers had scared me witless – I once got slapped in the eye by one when doing 40 mph on a scooter. It hurt. They also have very mean seed distribution methods – namely flinging them into the eyes of any passers-by.
I wish all London Plane trees would disappear overnight to be replaced with other trees. I have therefore filed them into the category of Some things that… I hate.
