Here, dear reader, we see a welcome return to Window On Your World Part II (which was your favourite?) and an unwelcome return to my evening of nervousness.
I took the above photograph at 17:00 GMT on Sunday 4th March 2007, less than twenty four hours before I was due to meet Krafty Bitch...
Would he like me? Would my shyness impede our friendship? Would he think I was nuts? Would fear and doubt show on my face? Would my self-consciousness provoke a panic attack? What would we talk about? Should I play my cards close to my chest? Should I touch him? How should I greet him? Would we be at ease with one another or would the time spent be difficult? Were there any topics I should avoid? What would happen if I had a heart attack...?
All these questions, and more, would soon be answered... I needed to relax, think calm thoughts, compose myself, have an early night and be ready to be up with the lark for my journey to Bristol the next day.
I knew I knew something, but I didn't know what it was. I had to find out. About twelve hours until our meeting. In bed. Short prayer. Head hit the pillow. Asleep...
