Of crisp packets and condoms

There was an abundance of both these items scattered over the pavement outside our library this morning. Someone must have had one hell of a party (the condoms had been...er...utilised).

That's all. But it/they did set me wondering. As you do. (Not exactly material for a story, sadly, and not enough plot for a novel. A poem, perhaps? Nah.)

  1. It makes me wonder what sort of person it is that scatters crisp packets about.

  2. Maybe modern crisps come Viagra flavoured.

  3. What a romantic set up; spend the night outside the library with your girlfriend, and don't forget to bring some crisps - a sure way to a woman's heart!

    1. I was surprised there were no bottles or cans, Meike. Not even a single cork.

  5. I suppose that, as fewer people smoke these days, something had to take its place after sex.

    1. Graham you are considerate I just go to sleep. Or try to, it's difficult when someone is banging you in the ribs and asking if you are listening.

    2. GB, I recommend kippers. Adrian, you're such an old romantic.

  6. I thought I could make it work as a story for The People's Friend... on second thoughts, maybe not.
