Re: Solo Valentine!

In the end, I ended in a local restaurant, pampered like a king ("Are you on your own tonight?" - "Yes, something unexpected came up" - "Don't worry, we'll all look after you!"). Once I got over the heart-shaped marshmallows and the sad-looking inflatable "Love"balloon, I enjoyed a wonderful meal and, surprise, surprise, two thirds of the couples there looked so bored (angry, annoyed...) in each other's company that I ended being the welcome source of "distraction" for the evening (Watch Shirley Valentine, you'll know what I mean..."No one should be on their own on a day and in a place like this, come and join us..." - "No, no, really, I'm fine, I've got a good book with me..."), every table included me in their conversation.


Cherry on the cake: "YOU YODEL??! COME ON; DO A YODEL FOR US!!
- I can't yodel on an empty glass!
- Garçon, apportez encore un verre de vin pour monsieur!"


Not bad, not bad at all for an evening I was dreading...Did feel a bit lonely (and pissed) afterwards, though.
