Our school’s groundsman Patrick was a straight meat and two veg man. In the years before he retired I never saw him venture outside the confines of his traditional fare.
So when I bumped into him at the local Asian grocery store, I expressed my surprise.
“The wife wanted to get some ingredients for tonight” he sheepishly replied.
Wife? The bachelor boy had succumbed to the charms of a young Asian bride.
I glimpsed our old librarian Miss Wordsworth. What a bit of gossip to tell her.
“Yes, Miss Wo.., er, Emily and I got married last month” he gushed.
