Walking along with old college friends today in a part of town miiiiiles away from where I live.
Random man in sainsbury's uniform walks by.
"Hello Tim! How are you?"
"fine. How are you all?"
My college friend "what is this, do you live in Eastenders?".
"No. This is what happens when you home educate. You are on first name terms with the check out staff at the local supermarket. Home educated; not hidden."
