‘He’s always like this on the train…’

Homeward bound. At a table seat, a young couple sit with a baby of some months’ roundness. At the next stop a woman and a boy, probably about seven or eight, get on, and sit opposite them.

The boy starts chatting to the baby, and asking the parents questions about it. He’s friendly, and persistent. The parents respond, and the baby looks delighted. The woman with the boy – perhaps his grandmother rather than mother – looks slightly long-suffering.

As we draw into Glasgow Queen Street, the woman comments to the couple:

‘He’s always like this on the train. Settles down, and has a blether with whoever is next to him.’

Good on him.
