emergency energy boost
Cycling home tonight, a police car whizzed past me, blue lights flashing, siren blaring.
Two sets of traffic lights down the road, I spotted the same police car, pulled up in a bus lane, lights still flashing but only one policeman sat in the car on the passenger side and no criminal in site.
As I cycled past, the other policeman was strolling back from the local corner shop to his flashing illegally parked vehicle, clutching two bottles of Lucozade.
Turns out they just really needed an emergency fix of concentrated energy.
