Meeting Report

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far way ...

Wait a minute, that has been done before I think ... Here's what happened last Sunday:

The night before I gave E a call to confirm our meeting and to exchange our descriptions, she said she was going to wear a bright yellow shirt and a bright red jacket and I said I was going to be in black, I believe a famous designer once said that you can't go wrong in basic black, he didn't know what he was talking about actually, I'm digressing ...

Anyway, saw somebody in a blazing red jacket parking her motorbike and she waved at me and sure enough it was E and the rest as they say is history.

The fun part really started when we got to Marrybrown's, E told me that KF was going to be in a grey shirt with black stripes. E popped to the loo for a while and at the same time a guy in a stripe shirt made an appearance, he looked lost and as if waiting for someone, so I gathered my courage (what the heck, I'm a marine!!!) and approached him: Excuse me, are you KF? He looked confused and I thought maybe the long journey has done something to his brain, so I tried again: Are you waiting for somebody? He said yes, I said Who and he said Not you, I think. And that was the end of that!

After that I decided to go next door to a stationery shop to view some pens, I have this strange penchant for pens, when I came out there was this guy in stripes looking lost and bewildered but no way am I going to make a fool of myself again, so I stood behind him and started to make gestures to E, not rude ones mind you, I wonder what the people around were thinking when they saw me doing them, thank goodness E understood them and approached KF and everything worked out.

Then we waited for Blacky, he said that we should be on the lookout for a guy trying to balance pizza boxes and I thought he meant that literally, you know like the pizza delivery boys in the films. I was also keeping my eyes peeled towards my left because E said that would the most convenient way for him to come and I have to say Blacky, that I did not realised you were there until you and E started talking. It was really a let down, I was really looking forward to your balancing act!

I won't go into the taxi ride and etc. there because E and Blacky had really done a good already.

And that was what happened on Sunday...

Semper Fi!
