I was up early this morning taking Chris for the 7am train to Bangor. As I drove back home,somewhat blurry eyed, I recognised a man I know exiting the paper shop and he waved as I went past
I won't say more about just how I know this guy as it would, I am sure give his identity away to village readers, suffice to say he is a man in his seventies.
Anyhow I remember this morning a conversation I had with him a few years ago now which was excruciatingly embarrassing for him and exquisitely funny for me... it went roughly as follows
"Does your wife work at the hospital too?"
"I live with Chris , he works at Bangor University"
"He's a research fellow"
"oh,....... that's good, "
Slight awkward silence
"We used to have a gay lesbian couple living next to us, they were nice big Jolly girls"
"Yes both worked for Flintshire County Council as I recall
"..........had a lot of rabbits...."
