Truckstop Brief Encounter
Couple of months back I pulled into a services on the A1 for my 45 minute tacho break. I set the alarm on my phone and went for a coffee.
As there was no one else about, I hung around near the cashier to keep her company in a non-stalkery fashion (these services get the odd grab and run by the scrotes).

We chatted. We chatted some more. She told me a few things. I returned the courtesy. I bought her a coffee. She told me she finished in 10 minutes, and could I walk to her car. Nothing if not a gentleman...and when we got there, she raised an eyebrow.

And the countdown timer went off.

Me "You know I'd love to, but: I've got 23 tonnes of peas in the back, and my wedding ring is getting hot. So is yours, I'll bet."

Her "First time in 17 years I forgot it was there. Shake my hand, once, and don't look round as you go."

Triumph? Disaster? I'll never know. I'll never go back there either.

I'm proud of you
Especially since my wife is now with the man I thought my best friend.

You had me at "23 tonnes of peas in the back."

That was a great tale nicely told.

It's that kind of thing that makes EVERYONE feel better, you, her, us.

I did think
"23 tons of peas in the back... much more comfortable than your front seat."

But well done. Have a click for much-underrated fidelity.

We didn't even exchange names
But I'll remember her for a very long time. I'll remember as well that I did the right thing, thanks to you guys.

Indeed you did

One thing I did when I got home: I didn't tell MrsScars what had happened. I may be daft but I'm not stupid. However, I let her know in proper K.W.A fashion how much I appreciated her.

I hope that somewhere on the eastern side of England, some guy was also feeling "rather warm and very much astonished".

Why couldn't I have met you first!
*clicks* BTW

We might have done
I was living just down the road in Isleworth between 84 - 86, opposite the railway station. If you were ever at the bar of the geophysics survey social club and you ran into a ginger motorbike courier...

But I wasn't worth having then. The woman I met and married some years later made me human. Whatever the problems we had and have, (one of which led me out into the car park that night) there is a great deal of loyalty and gratitude to overcome. Good thing the alarm went off and broke the mood though; 5 more minutes and I might have done something stupid.

We must have passed each other at some point, but I was young and firmly in love, so I wouldn't have noticed you.

I've been thinking about this a bit and I think it all depends who is stronger: the little devil sitting on your left hand shoulder, or the little angel on the right. There's often a tussle between them, but if the angel wins every argument, then there's not a lot you can do about it.

I think I'll suggest that for an image challenge.

All the best Scarface!

It's only demons in my case
but some of them are on opposite sides. Thanks for the kind wishes.

BTW, the scars aren't on my face. Dear me no.

There simply isn't room...

I have to admire your willpower
Many would have failed at this point

Nothing but admiration.
You are a better man than I, Gunga Scars.
Have a click.
