Fruit Towers, like most buildings, has a roof. It’s a fine roof, as roofs go. It’s high up, it has the appropriate safety barriers, it gets windy. It’s a roof. Occasionally we go on the roof to take pictures of our smoothies.
But roof access is limited. We can’t just have anybody going up there. It wouldn’t be safe. No, instead you have to ask Jasper first. This is Jasper on the roof.
The other day, when Jasper let us onto the roof to take a picture of our smoothies, he mentioned something about a secret. A secret on the roof. But he wouldn’t tell us what it was. We’ve asked him over and over again but he’s not budging. To be honest, it’s bothering us. We come into work every day and look up at the roof.
“What’s your secret?” we say to the roof, but the roof never responds.
We go into Fruit Towers and see Jasper.
“What’s your secret on the roof?” we say to Jasper, but Jasper never responds.
What could it be? Is Jasper sleeping up there, just like when nobody knew Ben was sleeping in the gym for a few months? Is he secretly designing a giant telescope which he can use to spy on the people of Ladbroke Grove? Could it be that there are solar panels up there (which we already know about, so if it is that then in your face, Jasper)?
If you know Jasper’s roof secret, please tell us. It’s too much to bear.
A couple of months ago we saw some pigeons on our way to the shops and we've been keeping a close eye on them since. The pigeons are still there but something's up with them. They look different somehow. We're not sure what though, can't quite put our finger on it.
We'll report back as soon as we know more.
At lunchtime, on the way to the supermarket, having walked the ‘secret’ route under the bridge and along the canal, we spotted these pigeons. Loads of them. This picture doesn’t do it justice. They were everywhere
We can’t help but wonder what they were queuing for. Were they waiting for their own lunch? Or concert tickets? Were they queuing for a famous pigeon celebrity who was doing a book signing?
We’ll probably never know but, just in case, we’ll keep an eye on them.
