"We haven't seen you in years" they said.
"Let's have lunch when you're in Sydney" they said.
"Sunday. 1pm. Wharf Bar. All the old gang is coming" they said.
I turn up. Sunday. 1pm. Wharf Bar.
They're not there.
NONE OF THEM.
They don't answer their calls or respond to texts. I call up a totally different friend who lives nearby. She hot-foots it on down to the bar to share some vino with me.
It's now almost 10pm and I've still heard nothing, so unless someone's died, this is what I say...
