I beg your pardon?
At last! My true status has been verified!
This morning, as I was walking past the train station on my way to work, I was greeted thusly by the regular Big Issue seller there:
"Good morning, your Royal Highness. How are we today?"
Of course, I smiled graciously as I glided past, turning my head to face the bowing and scraping* minion who'd spoken up, and replied:
"Fine, thank you. Have a good day."
It was either that or "Beg me, Ross. Beg me." But I didn't think he'd get the reference.
Anyway, I walked towards work with a big grin slapped to my face, thinking what a wonderful start to the day.
And then I got to work and had an utterly shit day.
* He really did scrape. He looked like he was attempting to bow, but it kind of turned into a curtsey and then he looked as if he was going to fall over - Must've been the Tennants Extra he had for breakfast...
