Everyone’s at it.
The Tyne Bar.
I was in The Tyne Bar in Newcastle at the weekend.
And I glanced over to the couple opposite.
Now, I did think that I’d only ever see younger couples doing this in public.
It’s older couples too.
These guys were in their sixties.
And they didn’t care who was watching.
They just got their heads down and got on with it.
For over 20 minutes I was glancing across at them.
And they did it non-stop.
They didn’t utter a word to each other.
Even when they saw me looking, nothing changed.
They just kept on doing it.
So there you go.
It seems that they just couldn’t help themselves.
Over in the corner.
Their fingers were little more than a blur as they fiddled.
I’d seen younger people doing it lots as I say.
But at their age!
I’d never seen that before.
It seems that no one is immune these days.
The phenomenon is ageless.
So I took a sneaky photo of them.
