Speechless.

For awhile now, I have been getting up my nerve to approach the wife of one of Krip's childhood friends to see if she wanted to do something, just the two of us. We always get together as a couple, but never just her and me. So on Saturday night, at a party at their house, I took her aside and asked her if she would like to have a girls' day out and perhaps take the train to London.

"What the hell do you want to go to London for!!"

Reeling from her barking at me and wanting to melt into the furniture, the idea of perhaps lunch, and then a little shopping, or perhaps just visiting a museum was some of the things that popped into my head; however, I said nothing because I was, well just gobsmacked.

And that was it. Nothing else said. So much for sticking one's neck out.

Never again.

Oh how terrible... I hate sticking my neck out like that, too.

Perhaps at the next gathering, just for kicks and curiosity, you could just say something like, 'So - what is it about London that you don't like?' Think of it as a science experiment. ;-)

As long as I don't mix the wrong chemicals together and have it blow up in my face. :0

Dont take it as a rebuff - some people are naturally brusque. Yorkshire people for instance...
Just as her where she'd like to go...

Birdie, I have a feeling she doesn't want to go anywhere. Oh, well. Her loss.

How rude. There's just no excuse for such bad manners!
