So this afternoon I was walking past a Mini sales/service shop in Putney and I was gripped by an intense desire to own one. I have been on this planet for 28 years and have NEVER wanted a Mini before. I always kinda liked them, but never seriously wanted one, but for the last 3 hours its been allI can think about. Its like the day I realised that women's bottoms are wonderful (I was 11 when that happened, but I remember it clearly). Weird.
