After several unsuccessful attempts, suddenly, it was in my hand: the means to complete my odyssey unscathed. Now I knew that I would not be speared by Mr. Bowler Hat’s umbrella (unless he speared me on purpose – you never know these days, even though I’m not a spy) nor would I be hurled into a compromising position relative to Miss Pretty Young Office-girl (I don’t even know her.) I would reach my destination with neither multiple injuries nor acute embarrassment – clearly, no mean consideration.

Anyone else who has managed to lay claim to a grab handle round about Oxford Circus will appreciate what I’m talking about…
