The Evolution of Carl

At 9.30am in Hackney today, I saw a man in his late 50s wearing just a pair of shorts, holding a large pack of chips in one hand and a half full 2 litre bottle of cider in the other. He was singing ‘It’s Not Unusual’ by Tom Jones, at a lamppost.

Keep your head down. He’s harmless. But it’s early. Just get to work and cross your fingers he gets to where ever he’s going, safely.

17-YEAR-OLD CARL

Nice life choices, loser! It’s pretty cool knowing I’ll never end up like that.

7-YEAR-OLD CARL

Wow! He’s unlike any big person I’ve ever seen! I wish he was my dad. I can’t wait to grow up and have all the fun I want!
