Stay In Touch!

Share

I wonder how many of you have met somebody (or a couple) on holiday and used the phrase ‘we must stay in touch‘?

Later, when memories of the vacation are best summed up by the tatty guidebook on a car boot sale stall, have you lived to regret those words spoken on a foreign beach?
I realise that some acquaintances made on holiday can become friends for life, however some don’t……..

We met them on a beach
And realised we had something in common
They were married
(So were we!)
They came from near London
(So did we!)
They were on holiday
(So were we!)
“We must stay in touch!”

We met them the next day
They had two children
(So did we!)
They both worked
(So did we!)
They liked eating out
(So did we!)
“We must stay in touch!”

We met them on the flight home
They enjoyed the meal
(So did we!)
They had bought souvenirs for their children
(So had we!)
They had enjoyed their holiday
(So had we!)
“We must stay in touch!”

We had them round for dinner
After they’d rung six times!
He was a bore
She was worse
The holiday was prominent in conversation
Or rather the only mutual topic
And as they left we said
“We must stay in touch!”
