Flippin' 'eck!
Yesterday, while on the way home from work, I managed to injure my right foot while on an escalator. The rest of the journey home was performed with a serious limp. Today, I find myself with a big toe the size of a golf ball. Walking is now very painful, and as a result, I have had to take the day off of work. Believe me, I shall not be attempting to go anywhere today. Probably not even to the karaoke tonight.

Do be careful with yourselves. And ride those escalators with great care. And don’t think that those brush-strip-thingies that run the length of an escalator will prevent your foot from being yanked round 180 degrees! They may go some way to bringing a safer ride, but they do not go all the way.
