Eau de Carlsberg


He texted me two hours before we were supposed to meet: “I still really want to see you, but you should know I had a really heavy night last night, and I’m extremely hungover. Also, I am wearing inappropriate shoes.”

I presumed that this was a nice way of saying he needed to cancel, and I asked if he’d rather postpone, but no.

He did indeed turn up for the date bleary-eyed, reeking of booze and wearing dive boots.
