Hola. Hope you are well.
I went back to Manchester recently for my mate’s wedding (I was the best man). Prior to my return, I decided to ‘reach out’ and txted a number of people I’d not seen for a while. In the message I told people I would be in a designated pub at 8pm on the Thurs and for them to come along should they be around. As is often the case with these things, the people who couldn’t make it contacted me straight away.
By the evening of the meet up I only had one person who had confirmed they could make it. As I was walking to the pub I got a txt off this person saying they were too ill to make it.
This left me in the odd situation where I still had to go to the pub just in case those people who hadn’t contacted me at all, turned up.
By 8:15 no one had turned up, neither had my pint (apparently they were changing to barrel) but then my pint turned up, as did a colleague who I used to work with in the late 90’s. She proceeded to repeat back things I’d said from that period, all of which I had no recollection of.
I’m not sure what the moral of this story is, if there is one at all.
Til next time, stay safe!
