One: Smile at people I don’t know. Particularly on public transport
Two: Start conversations with waiters/shopkeepers/the bloke working in the car park. Asking ‘how are you?’ tends to elicit a strange look rather than a response
Three: Drive on the pavement
Four: Smooth things over with a police officer by handing over the equivalent of 80 pence.
Five: Get served in a bar without having to leave my seat
Six: Forget to lock the door. There are no askaris outside the house in Crouch End
Seven: Watch Aston Villa on television. 3pm kick offs can’t be shown on television in the UK – a rule to encourage football fans to go to actual matches. Something African leagues can only dream of.
Eight: Spend half a day at the post office trying to pick up one small parcel
Nine: Decide I want to see some lions and find one within the hour
Ten: Pay for something with my mobile phone
