I thought it was just more rain

Turns out it was an eclipse of the sun. Had I been better informed I might have been able, like the characters in boyhood stories, to use it to secure my release from a particularly dastardly boring-to-death this morning.

Alas, I was not thus informed and so suffered the torment oblivious.

Still, I’m on my way home to the Three now. Pretty sure this is dusk, not another eclipse. I suppose I could leap up and try to convince everyone in the carriage that the world’s ending and see if any of then will throw money at me. Probably wouldn’t throw anything at all. They’d all stare fixedly out of the windows. Only in England …
oops. there’s my station.
