I had encounters with two chartered surveyors on the same day.
The first – RA – spoke to me of his ‘elephantine’ features as contrasted with my ‘beauty’ as he walked me to a tube station in London.
I did not see the second – AH – in person. Instead someone pointed out to me his award-winning sculpture. This took the form of a large chestnut that emerged through a garden wall of a leafy English suburb.
