Do you ever get that thing where you think about something, and then it happens?
For example, you might think about how you haven’t heard “We Close Our Eyes” by Go West since 1992 and then all of a sudden there it is on Spotify playlist marked “Saturday” entertaining you while you get the bus to Thorpe Park for your birthday? That sort of thing?
Yeah, me too.
Anyway, I mention this because it was only the other day when I was pondering whether I would ever see a polar bear the size of a double decker bus strolling around London in my lifetime, and then the weirdest thing happened.
I got this email saying there was going to be a giant polar bear and it was going to be out and about on the 14th September near the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Bridge, along with the following delicious words:
PICTURES OF THE GIANT BEAR AVAILABLE.
Normally I ignore these sort of emails, but offering me pictures of a giant polar bear is like saying would you like to try out these new £100 notes? so I replied in my best important business-like email voice:
And just like that, there was a bear next to a double decker bus in my inbox.
Thus confirming that I am pretty much psychic.
You can see Aurora, Greenpeace’s giant bear parading towards the Shell Headquarters trying to save the Arctic on Sunday 15th September.
Rumours that it will also be attempting to climb the Shard are as yet unconfirmed.
It’s going to be a good week.
