Wow, here we are at step three, I will continue from where we left you hanging on the edge of your seats after exchange number two…
“can I borrow this chair” asked an unsuspecting Rob, he was at the table next to us with a group of people we would soon come to discover were his acting buddies who had travelled from Bournemouth with their play “Baddies” Performing at the space on the mile, Edinburgh. We wasted no time bombarding Rob with our crazy story and guess what? He loved it, he was digging in his pocket for change before I even got the words ” power of the compound out” and I hadn’t even started on the one red paper clip story yet! Such a good sport.
Our penny had now magically transformed into … eight pennies! Get in. Rob kindly told us all about his show and gave us some hints and tips, if we ever get to bring a show to the fringe next year. Where to stay, where to eat how to flyer drop, a skill most Edinburgh fringe performers have developed into a fine art form.
Talking of where to eat, now seems the most appropriate time to tell you about the tiniest, most hilariously cheap little cafe named snax on west register street, just behind princes street. Anna and I were feeling particularly hungover and had missed the hotel breakfast. I know this seems like a trivial problem but believe me, it is simply not worth being with Anna when she is hangry, this is a mix of hungry and angry (we stole that saying from a fabulous show called ‘Title Of Show’ go see it, it’s epic) Anna will not rest until she has had a breakfast, and I was still on a mission to eat as much haggis and black pudding as humanly possible. I’d already had haggis and black pudding pizza, haggis spring rolls and haggis crisps, this was my chance to have just plain and simple haggis and black pudding for breakfast. Whoop.
So we rocked up at snax and I have to say I nearly didn’t bother going in. It is the tiniest cafe with seating for about five and a half people ( I say half because as we found out, you kind of have to sit so close to everyone you are almost on their lap, intimate is the word) it looks a bit grubby and there were a lot of workmen hovering around, I have nothing against workmen I just wasn’t sure what the mixed odour of fry up, hangover and workmen would smell like? Quite pleasant it turns out! We ordered an even bigger breakfast with a cup of tea, you can have breakfast, big breakfast, bigger breakfast or even bigger breakfast. Genius. It was amazing, and only cost £4 …. £4!!!! Am I the only person who thinks this is the most amazing thing EVER? Probably.
I digress, I’m good at it. So … #WMoney followers… Meet Rob …

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE WITH THAT 8p YOU JUST GAVE US: Probably would get a few chips at the chippy ( I don’t know any chippys who do 8p worth of chips, I should’ve told him about snax, he so could get something for 8p there! Sorry Rob)

Rob then proceeded to show us his special skill which we filmed and may upload some time for comedy value.
