emergency swimwear and zombies
Another weekend activity involved obtaining emergency swimwear...so that we could use the fancy spa at the Corinthia, obviously.
We tripped around the corner to Lillywhites, which has huge quantities of swimwear on the 6th floor. Now Lillywhites is right by Eros* in Piccadilly Circus. The well-known meeting place for out-of-towners.
So far, so good.
Then I noticed the first one. Corner of eye. A fella who looked as if he'd been in a recent accident, but still seemed mobile enough.
Glance across again to the statue. A slight change in its population. They seemed to be getting more, er, gruesome.
A few moments later one flitted right across my field of vision. Yes this was turning into a full-on zombie attack.
They say you never see the one that gets you.
* I know it's not really Eros - It's Anteros who was Eros brother - note the plumed butterfly wings and long hair.
