I turned the corner, and there, coming towards me was a ginormous pom-pom. It was dressed in a pink and purple knit cover, and it swayed as it came towards me. It looked extremely confident. At that moment I felt far from confident. I was sure I was having delusions, until it pushed me up against a brick wall and squished me. I couldn’t breathe. It was in all the papers later. The BBC showed it on the news. No-one knows where it came from. It’s made me a bit agoraphobic.
