I ran past the Great Spoon of Ilford dodging first pedestrians then the derelicts parked out front on the pavement.  While I was taking the photo, I got the distinct impression that these were actually a group of junkies (collective noun, A Fix of Smackheads).  At least they were in front of the Great Spoon.

Oh, a “great spoon” is a double pint.  A lot of the customers seemed familiar with this concept.  And, those that don’t have that excuse seemed to be a bit — erm — off.  Like the guy next to me that spent the entire wait in the queue counting and recounting his change because he needed to get the optimum combination of change and to keep the shiniest of the coins that would do that job.  Addicts and obsessives.
