"one of those things you put down to experience"
It started with a tup related enquiry and an ill-advised third cup of coffee and ended in me driving ThesaurusBoy from his desk in despair at the unstoppable babble of caffeine fuelled high school reminiscence.
Yes it is true.
I really did have a friend who went out with someone (the chemist's son: blonde, smarmy, sarcastic) she didn't like that much for over a year as a means of getting close to his friend (the jeweller's son: blonde, aloof but decent), I really did work with someone who was related by marriage to an Olympic swimmer and I really did play a game of chess with UnrequitedLove without exchanging a word: why would that surprise anyone?
