While we were talking two women came into the bar and stood next to us to order drinks. Later, while I waited in the lobby while Pat went off to the loo, one of them came up to me and said, 'Is that Pat you were with? Because if it is, I went to your wedding!'
This beautiful lady turned out to be the ex-girlfriend of an old pal of Pat's with whom we had been at several weddings that singular summer. Now I don't remember much about my wedding (long story), but how likely is it that you are going to have an apparent stranger (or at least someone you don't recognise) come up to you in a cinema lobby and say 'I went to your wedding' fourteen and a half years after the event?! Anyway, it turned out they had a lovely time at our wedding. I'm glad somebody did.
