A little while ago, I went along to meet someone on whom I wanted to make a good impression, not least for future work opportunities.

You might have had an experience when you were young and single, perhaps at a bar, where you met someone smoking hot, and at the very least you wanted them to think you’re a normal human being, but for some reason you sidled up to them, your voice went weird and you said something totally inane, such as ‘I like three different types of mustard’.

And they smiled and nodded and backed away, and you wondered why you did that and wished the Earth would swallow you up.

Well, it was a bit like that.

Sorry M——; if by some miracle you ever read this, I’m not usually such a klutz 😂😂😂
