Hot date destination

Ok Guys, I know Sharon J has told you to watch out for this. I found it hilarious.

One day, on holiday, Kim and I got back to our room to a message from reception.
'Scotty came to see you and has left his number'
Kim and I looked at each other, as we hadn't a clue who Scotty was.
Kim phoned the reception, and as she was talking. I heard her ask, 'Oh was he an old guy?'
The penny dropped. On the flight over, we had got talking to an elderly gentleman in the seat in front. He was Grenadian and spent six months in the UK and six months in Grenada as he has retired from the UK. He was a lovely old gent, so we telephoned him and made a date to meet for breakfast the next morning.

The next morning, Scotty duely arrived and off we went for a Caribbean breakfast. While we were sitting eating he suddenly came onto Kim BIG STYLE!!! He turned from lovely old gent into letchy old codger!! But I must admit that he was funny with it.

After being told by Kim that she had a boyfriend and was in fact planning to get married in September, he then turned his attentions to me!!! (Story of my life guys, always second best!!! LOL)

He asked me if I would like to go out with him for the day and that he would phone 'Miss Rosalyn' to see if she had two tickets for the bus.

I politely asked him where it was he was thinking of taking me, thinking that it might be a nice island trip, or a visit to the local rum or cocoa plantation. He leant forward and said.
'To a funeral'

I didn't know what to say, so I repeated 'A Funeral?' He nodded, he was going to take me to a funeral.

I just burst out laughing. I told him I had no intention of going to a funeral whilst on holiday, even though I knew they were a right old knees up in the Caribbean.

So there you have it. That was my hot date destination. Now I am going to tag Sharon J, Knowleypowley, Caroline and Gentleman Oracle to tell me their outrageous date destinations.

Sharon J said...

Now there's a premise for a great story, Knowley! You've really got my imagination working overtime! :-)

My ex and I once where deciding where to go for dinner and ended up in France for three days. But is that outrageous? Maybe no.

I have been out on a date with someone and left with someone else. The original date giving us a lift home. But surely that makes me outrageous.

Oh dear i need to shut up.

Carol / Sharon

It was an eye opening evening. Especially as I ran out of petrol on the way and had to fill up at tesco's in a dress.

Sharon J said...

OMG! That's just made the whole thing even better! What a star you are, Knowley :-)

Knowleypowley said...

Ooh Ta Mate

Carol said...

I am intrigued. Please I am BEGGING you, enlighten me!!! Please do it for a sick woman. LOL

That too sounds interesting........

Knowleypowley said...


It involved being taken out as an honorary girl along with 20 midwives.......

Anyway, a great evening as the only man/woman amongst all those lovely ladies marred only by the velco effect of the hair growing back on my legs later that week.
