Six days before the nuptials.

This is entirely fictional… of course

Return from walking the dog to accusations of not pulling my weight. Suggest that First of Her Name might like to walk dog who has for the last hour been constantly pulling my weight leaving my shoulder Demi-dislocated. Am accused of man-fluing and told to find a job. Decide to construct the stands that will hold the table plans. This involves replacing corks in empty bottles the inserting a spiked card holder into said corks. Have just realised that we are one bottle short and am on verge or remedying this small setback with a cheeky Shiraz when First of Her Name returns from nail parlour. Expect dressing down but receive unexpected congratulations on identifying First of Her Name’s very specific needs after trying morning. End afternoon trying to fire tennis balls into birdbath using Spanx with First of Her Name. Perhaps wedding will be a success after all.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    The Textiliste (spelling?) looks utterly lovely. Much too young to have a grown daughter. You look pretty good yourself.
