Stood Up?

A mass of red hair was approaching me again. I'd waited the two hours. I was just finishing my third pint as she walked in.

Hmm would she notice I'd had a couple?

Not likely. The future Mrs Soldier had had 'a few for her nerves' while she'd been getting ready.

So there you go one and all. Happy Ever After.

Well not quite.

Two months after Christmas my unit was moving to Germany.

Talk about bloody timing.

2 hours late! I hope she had a good excuse.

Seriously though, sat drinking on your own in an NI pub, probably checking your watch and looking anxious - did you feel nervous?

And that was your first taste of 'Women Time' which bears no semblance to 'Real Time'.

Still, she may well need a few stiffners if you're standing ther in your bearskin hat. ;-)

At least two months should give you time to know if it's serious. I'm out of cyber space till after Christmas so look forwad to catching up later. Happy Christmas US, GU and all your readers.

Rug Boy - not nearly as nervous as the first time I walked into her mural ridden estate!

FJL - so true. I'm the epitome of understatement.

GU - nah!

Greavsie - I believe that's akin to women's logic - I think therefore I'm right.

Pat - And merry chrimbo to yourself. Your New Years resolution must be to start blogging. You've got a ready made audience by all accounts.

I went to a wedding this year and overheard some folks talking about a bride who kept the groom waiting at the alter for two hours.

So that's the secret. Keep him waiting. For 2 hours.

Haha, so 2 hours is the secret, huh. Wish I'd know that earlier! Kidding ;-)

Hope everyone on here has a VERY safe and Merry Christmas and New Years!

US - I know the feeling! Although I have been more scared in parts of London, Bristol, etc.

GG - Ref 2 hours waiting at the alter, I told my wife that I would be leaving after 15 minutes so she shouldn't be late. She was only 5 minutes late in the end so here I am 2.5 years later.

So THAT'S why my first marriage didn't work - I'm always on time. Two of my three kids - the girls! - came early, even. Guess they take after their mother. The boy was late. Just like his dad...LOL

Merry Christmas!
