Every year MrM reminds MrsM that 22nd February is a special day because that is when they met for the first time when MrsM was very young, only slightly older than MissM is now.
And MrsM smiles and remembers their first date a few days later.
MrM offered to treat MrsM to fish and chips and so they queued outside the small shop in King Street, Cambridge. It was late and dark but the lights were bright through the windows. Every time the door opened a cloud of steam billowed outwards. MrsM didn't mind how long she queued because she had MrM to talk to. When MrM and MrsM got to the counter the man frying the fish looked at MrsM and said "Is he treating you to a big night out love?" and he gave her a friendly smile and a wink.
MrsM can remember every single detail of that evening because she had fallen in love, although she didn't realise it then.
And it is still a treat to have fish and chips with MrM twenty eight years later.
