stopped before I
said I was Charlotte Bronte
in previous life
Readers of this ‘blog’ should be aware the on Saturday I enjoy a silly feature of the Guardian Newspaper titled, ‘Blind Date.’
Two unknowns agree to meet for a free meal at a London restaurant then they have to fill out a questionnaire on the date.
It is simple harmless fun for the most part.
I enjoyed this one very much.
The question asked was: What do you think he made of you?
Her response was: “He may think I’m not right in the head. I should’ve stopped before I said I was Charlotte Brontë in a previous life. In fact, I should’ve stopped after two drinks.“
For his part, to the question, ‘Describe Laurine in three words‘, he responded, ‘Kind, introspective and hilarious.‘
While he did answer, ‘Childhood memories; the best film adaptation of Emma (Clueless); her belief that she’s the reincarnation of Charlotte Brontë; how she once laid a rose on Keats’s grave and shed a tear (sorry, Laurine, it was just too good)‘ to “What did you talk about?“
To his credit, when asked, ‘Would you meet again?‘ he said, “Who wouldn’t? She’s a delight.“
