The weekend went off without a hitch. It was the first major fundraiser that I was in charge of and everything went fairly well. I had the opportunity to see Mr G in rare form and meet his wife. Actually we were all in rare form and therefore had a really good time! Even my anti-social husband had fun and that was a different kind of fun all in it’s own 😉
Mr G was very stand-offish at first. He felt very awkward talking to me or even acknowledging me until I broke the ice. Of course as the day went on there were a number of alcoholic beverages consumed and that lead to a few flirty conversations, stolen glances and random touches. Enough to feel the electricity. Mostly harmless.
I think the most ironic part of the weekend is that I actually like his wife. She’s my age (older than him!) and very fit and nice. I had this really awful picture in my mind of her so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw her. A bit odd but very nice. All around.
