A brief encounter

I had a brief encounter yesterday, and I'm still smiling about it now. :grin:

It happened at an exhibition of paintings in an art gallery in Nottingham. I stood for quite a while looking at one particularly good Lowry painting, along with several other people. When I turned to walk on to the next one, I found that I couldn't move. I was literally stuck to a man who had been standing next to me. :shock:

His coat was open, and the velcro fastening on it had attached itself firmly to my jacket. We were completely velcroed together :!: :lol: As I hastily tried to untangle myself, I couldn't help noticing that he was about 6ft tall, dark and very handsome :grin:
( quite a hunk :grin: )

At that point, I decided to play the part of the helpless female...........
( can you blame me :?: :lol: )

He laughed and said, ''There's got to be a joke in this about picking someone up!'' so I unashamedly fluttered my eyelashes as I replied, ''In an art gallery too!'' h090.gif

We finally managed to unvelcro ourselves, but as he moved away, he turned back and gave me a rather cheeky wink. th_AnimatedSmileyWinking.gif

As it was my birthday yesterday, I was feeling as though I'm rapidly becoming rather ancient, but the man was about half my age, so the wink was a very nice boost to my morale :grin:

Perhaps I haven't lost it totally after all :!: :lol:

I think I might go and write a Mills and Boon novel now :lol::lol:

    ooooooooooooooohh - you must write a novel, sounds like a great "brief encounter".
    Nottingham, my home town of years gone by. How is it all looking these days? A far different place than I remember I am sure.
    I am off to find a velcro coat.......... 8)

    Nottingham's certainly changed a bit over the years, but it's still a great city. :grin:

    Do you think the man goes round all the art galleries trying out the velcro trick :?:
    I must say that I was surprised how quickly we seemed to get connected, so to speak :lol:

    There's definitely a novel in it somewhere ( even a film :!:)
    .........now I'm getting carried away with all this romance :lol:
