The same moment, from another point of view


It was Sarah's idea to move on to another pub. She's little and she doesn't like crowds. We'd left it too late to get seats at the Fool. Boy, was it busy! We weren't even going to be served for several minutes by the look of things.

Sarah said "Let's go to the Fox. By the river there'll be space to sit on the bank if there's no room inside."

It seemed like a good idea. Claire was looking fairly tired after her long day at work, but if we moved now she'd at least be able to sit down somewhere later on. I sacrificed my chance of a Lofthouse Real Ale, which was the special that week at the Fool, and we went to the Fox.
