We’re coming up out of the Tube this afternoon after a long day noodling around Brick Lane‘s rolling flea market and art swap meet.

My 6-year-old’s ahead of me on the escalator. “Get your toe out of there! Quit screwin’ around!”

It’s been a long day, everyone’s tired and punchy and grumpy, and this is just another way of her pulling my chain, I’m convinced.

“I can’t!”

“Shit!” I grab her arms and pull her just as the escalator devours the toe of her Croc and pulls it off her foot.

Thank God they were loose. After we all recover from our near-coronaries, we stand around and laugh the laughs of people who have jointly cheated death. Or at least a horrible maiming.
