Abdul, before I got married I had a very close male friend; we were inseparable, so much so that people thought we were an item.

Years later, Mrs. Camel told me that she'd once shared a taxi with him on the way back from the pub I used to run and he'd tried to chat her up and invite her in for "coffee". She was having none of it and sent him on his way with a fair clip to the ear to remember her by, much to the amusement of the cabbie.

All credit to him, he agreed to be my best man and performed his duties honourably despite being insanely jealous, something I was blissfully unaware of. A chum indeed!

That's very nice, but nothing to do with the happy fictional couples, Higgins and Pickering, Eliza and Freddy.

Shaw himself (in an afterword to Pygmalion, which does not have that last scene in My Fair Lady) says that Eliza will marry Freddy.

He is of course discreet about Higgins and Pickering. Who were confirmed old bachelors not like you and your buddy before that picture was taken.

Heh. Had Mrs. Camel not appeared in our lives and disrupted our routine, my chum and I would be living together, happy in the knowledge that our mothers would show up twice a week to do the ironing, make sandwiches and dispose of all the empty bottles and cans.

Thank you all for the hilarious welcome back. I've missed most of you because you guys don't do FBook, so I guess I must be an irritant here again. :)
So it's just hit and run, finally? :jaded:

I've missed you, Mlynn, for I am a gentleman.
