Vincent usually carries a banana about his person. He skips breakfast and eats the banana whenever he feels his energy levels dipping. This morning he stands half asleep in the foyer of Holland Park tube station waiting for the elevator. Experiencing an energy low, he removes the banana from his pocket and begins to eat it. The elevator doors slide open to reveal thirty-two old-aged pensioners cramped tightly together. After the pensioners untangle umbrellas, handbags and walking sticks they slowly file out. One old woman wearing bright pink glasses smiles at Vincent and says "You weren't expecting that were you?"
