My perfect Urchin date would be with myself on a Saturday in June. I’d pick me up around 9 in the morning, after having slept a perfect 8 hours the night before. Breakfast would be some vegan sausage and lots of water, and then we’d be off! On the tube, we’d read the London Paper and write poems in our head. We’d arrive in Hyde Park, which would be bustling with people enjoying the lovely day, and take in the nostalgia. We would have a laugh about all the well-behaved British dogs who didn’t need to be on leashes and the small French children flying by on their scooters at 160 km/h. Finding a quiet spot under a large, old tree, we would take some time to write down the poetry from the tube and some new ideas for essays.
By now, we’d be getting pretty hungry, so we’d stop into a Sainsbury for some snacks, including a Sainsbury’s Dark Chocolate Bar for £0.43. We’d take our lunch and head over to the South Bank for a nice, sunny lunch on the river. Once finished, we’d go into the Tate Modern, where we’d be sure to visit my favourite paintings, Cy Twombly’s Quattro Stagioni. While in the Tate Modern, we’d happen by a window and notice that it had begun to rain. Heading to the Cafe, we’d snuggle up to a window with some tea and watch London in the rain.
Then, I’d walk myself home, and get ready for my date that night.
