Last night I went with my family out to dinner. We went to a very popular Lebanese Restaurant in town; great food but no sign of the ladies in loafers.
We were almost finished when this guy comes over and starts talking to us. "Who the elephant are you?" was my first thought as he chatted away and "Hos do you know us?".
After several minutes it clicked. It was my brother. I swear on Bob's legacy, it took me about five minutes to realise I was talking to my own brother and to be brutally honest it was not until he mentioned his younger daughter's name that I actually clicked.
Now to put this in context, I last saw him just after Christmas so it is only 4 months or so. He has been very unwell, Brain Cancer [shocked us all, we never knew he even had a brain], and has undergone surgery, chemo and radio. He is totally bald, worse than my egg-shell blond, but what threw me was the fact his face is puffed up out of all recognition.
After he left to regoin his party, dear Mrs Wife asked who it was.
