A very long drinking engagement, and a wedding of fools
Last night Scalene introduced Biscuit and I to FleetStreetFox. There was laughter, there was vomiting and there were serious conversations about weddings. That’s quite a lot for a Tuesday evening.
We met the infamous FleetStreetFox in a bar so dark that I think Scalene found her by echolocation rather than sight.
FleetStreetFox was working on a bottle of wine and we said awkward hellos. FleetStreetFox was definitely foxy, we (Biscuit and I) were both caught slightly off guard by that. I think Biscuit was even momentarily shy.
I’m not allowed to give a longer description of her because she is all secret, we weren’t even allowed to know her real name.
Once the ‘oh my god it’s mad people off the Internets’ bit was out-of-the-way it was fun. It’s always interesting to find out if you match your blog persona. According to FleetStreetFox we are both a bit older than she thought and I am less stupid in real life. Only a bit mind.
Everyone got on terribly well, we drank far too much wine and covered some very important subjects. Namely DragonForce/Scalene, who has dated the biggest pervert and the nature of bets.
FleetStreetFox and Scalene both thought that the wager should end at the wedding, because people can have really long engagements and that would be cheating.
We also discussed the nature of the forfeit. My suggestion that the loser should have to shave every single hair from their body did not get approved. Which is probably for the best given that at the moment Biscuit is clearly in the lead.
This sort of nonsense went for most of the night and only stopped when the bar staff forced us to leave. We ambled home, pausing only to get chips and for Biscuit to do some light acrobatics and then collapsed for the evening. It was an excellent ‘quick drink after work’ on a Tuesday.
I won’t say who was sick the next day but their name rhymes with Miscuit.
- Drinking nice wine may make you feel sophisticated but it will still make you do and say stupid things if you put enough in your mouth
- No-one wins when you have a competition over who has dated the biggest pervert
- After drinking a lot of wine, it’s not a good idea to go near the Internet, or your phone
- Scalene is surprisingly light, according to FleetStreetFox
