Writing 101 Day Eight, go to a public place make a detailed report of what you see.

Standing in the shelter of a shop door on the High Street, I was joined by this well dressed city gent.
Fumbling in the breast pocket of his Crombie overcoat he produced his monocle attached to a silk purple coloured ribbon.
He affixed the lens, produced a small leather bound diary, and proceeded to make a phone call from his Blackberry Phone.
Robert, running late for the meeting, pass on my apologies to the group.
The rain continued to come down in stair rods.
He proceeded to make another call – that meeting later, I’d advise you – Rob – OH Robert I was just calling a cab, got side tracked on the way to the meeting!
I’m in a very difficult position Robert, in that I’ve been offered the choice of two lucrative positions with our competitors.
Very good said Robert stone-faced, this unscheduled meeting saves us both being caught in an embarrassing situation, as the board were meeting to inform you of the ins and outs of the situation.
They had become aware of your position and we were convening this meeting to inform you we were terminating your contract.
The monocle dropped from his right eye, Robert tapped him on the shoulder, and got into the waiting cab.
Strange things happen all the time I guess, I must spend more time standing in shop doorways on the High Street.
