I love you hate you love you, etc.

I had a very long and convoluted journey to work this morning, which involved all manner of tubes and buses.

It didn't start well on the first bus. A very tall and irritating couple snogged all the way to Victoria Station literally millimetres from my face.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all for passion and first flush of love, etc., but they were about 45, she had a moustache and he was really very funny-looking. Between kisses they whispered 'I love you' in each other's ear, and greeted said epithet with the sickliest grins this side of the Hallmark Channel. So close was I, it was literally a menage a trois. I was tempted to ruin the mood and whisper 'I hate you', in each of their ears, but thought better of it.

Really, there is a time and a place.

Young couple all over each other ahead of me on the escalator the other night, snogging, with him carrying her and she was kicking me. I picked my nose vigorously in order to put them off; they then fell over and I tripped up on them.

I think I'd have licked your couple on the face, which would have shocked them into stopping.

You missed a great opportunity to ask them if they'd allowed the Lord Jesus into their hearts.
