The Start of Something

I gave my number to a stranger at a bus stop. Then his bus came, and he was gone, and Waterloo Bridge never again looked as beautiful as it did that perfect afternoon.

When I got home, all of my six cats had to be persuaded down from my overcrowded bookshelves. I loved their dainty hesitancy in descent, so Fonteyn-esque.

When Mr Bus Stop sent me a photo of his huge TV and his six-pack of Bud and his chunky shag-pile rugs which turned out to be three enormous dogs, I pinged back a link to Paula Abdul’s Opposites Attract.

  1. I really want to know if this relationship will get off to a flying start or not. If the animals become jealous they could easily give them up – what a choice to make which will be stronger their love for each other or their pets.

  2. I like the way you describe the contrasts in their lives. I especially like the idea of the cats movements being ‘Fonteynesque’. Lovely. There doesn’t seem to be much common ground there, except for their choice of transport, but it’s clear they’re about to embark on something together.
