Planning for Pleasure

Technology makes the planning easy
An e-mail to make contact
A website to search for a location
Information exchanged to make a booking
A printer is required to get access to the prize
Then the rendezvous is set.

On the day, it is all down to precision timing
Putting on first one arm then the other
Buttoning and zipping to keep out the cold
Tightening laces
Then farewells are said.

Journeying through the city at dusk
The backdrop is dramatic
Anonymous in the crowd
Two methods of transport
One destination
Then the meet is on.

In the hubbub of the station
Brushing past people there is one detail left to chance
The precise location
Only a visual will confirm
A pedestrianized area and the neon signs
Then the path is right.

An important contact
Planned assignation
Co-ordinated Hello
Expectations are high
Yet tempered with doubt
Then it all falls into place.

We realise when we meet – we are dressed like twins
Trainers; jeans; warm coats and a backpack stuff to the zip
We had no idea that our perfect planning would go that far.
An evening of catch up; exchange and positive interaction
And the special prize
A good meal with excellent company (using a voucher).
