I wandered along today to have a look at the blue crystal flat on Harper Road that's been getting a bit of publicity. I wasn't wildly impressed, but it certainly wasn't a fruitless visit!

A woman in some distress approached me on Harper Road asking if I could lend her a lighter. I didn't have one, but this didn't deter her from explaining to me that she urgently needed one as she wanted to smoke some crack she had. I suppose I shouldn't have been too bemused by this, but my slightly puzzled condition was increased when I carried on down to New Kent Road, where a teenager on a bicycle zoomed past me, shouting racist abuse at another pedestrian and then heading back to give me a volley of homophobic abuse. It was all rather surreal.

I must go to Harper Road and see what happens!

You can buy lighters at the corner shop, or the newsagent on Harper Rd. I'd suggest buying a little less crack, so that there's enough change for a lighter.

Although I must say I've never been troubled by anyone wanting me to help them with their drug-taking in my frequent walks down Harper Rd.

...if you press it, they will come.

I must look like the sort of person who would oblige.

In which case...can I borrow your lighter, please?

Sounds like a sketch from Little Britain!
