Overheard in Blackwell’s

Very glamorous South African girl, at the next table —

“Realistically, you can’t be a Professor in the University before the age of thirty-six.”

Oh, Oxford….

Overheard in Blackwell’s on Broad Street, just before my supervision today:

“Cameron was just sooo close to what I wanted, you know? Like, not exactly, but definitely on the spectrum of Mr. Right?”

Bad boyfriend, or worse Prime Minister? This is Oxford, so possibly both.

But then again, the speaker didn’t look like Nick Clegg….
