The Snug

Now remember, you’ll sit on this side of the table and she’ll sit across from you. That way, you get the nicer chair and she has to sit on the bench, although, mind you, that bench is as old as the stone floors in this place. We had to replace the chair you’re  sitting in after the fire, and they didn’t make the old benches since way back before, so we got this here chair, which you’ll sit in, and be thankful for the cushions. So no remarks, or she’ll know what you’re up to. Let her bring it up, maybe after a pint or three, and see what her terms are. You may be surprised. She may surprise you yet. Yes she might, with a civil arrangement. All right, then? Well, drink up. She’ll be here soon. It’s unusual, you know, to arrange your own marriage. But, times are changing then, aren’t they.
