Ordinarily, a sought after quality in a date, however, it pays to be careful what you wish for, sometimes. Thinking that I was making some headway with a gorgeous young chap in The Punch and Judy, last night, alarm bells started ringing with his reluctance to put his hand in his pocket and buy a drink. After numerous and progressively less subtle hints, I decided to ask him directly what his game was and was furnished with the reply "I'm buggered if I'm going to line Frank Thorley's pockets for him!"
His loss, really. Had he done so, he may well have been!
