The 30yr affair 

We had only been dating about 30 thirty years when we finally managed allergy visits ..she insisted I arrive two hours before opening time and remove labels and interpretive boards .. The cafe was asked to reserve 7 tables just in case one was not quite right …we always discussed which would be the first ..I had suggested a rather obscure gallery in East Berlin  which you accessed through a hole in a pavement …she  insisted the National Portrait Gallery …. We found ourselves alone in front of a rather annoying Mattise ..she swooning in arms pleaded with me “Don’t you just love him ?” …” Not at all I believe him to be a creep and a pedant ”  ..I loosened my hold on her rather fine torso and she collapsed to the floor like a shopping bag of crockery recently purchased from a car boot sale …gathering herself and retrieving her composure we arrived separately to our reserved table in the cantina …we chose not share our chai latte and I was left to finish the times crossword without input from my Greek scholar and long time companion .
