Dear God, thank You for benches. Because once I sit down on a bench, nobody bothers me – at least they don’t here in the UK – and that can be such a blessing. It gives me a fantastic chance to simply do nothing and relax, even if only for a few minutes.
On a bench, I don’t even have to pretend to be doing anything and nobody thinks I’m mad. Well, no more than normal anyway. So, though it sounds silly, thank You for benches.
