So. Today signifies 25 years to the day that Helen Wade and I went on what could be constituted as our first date.
We went to the movies. Helen chose to watch Green Card, starring Andi McDowell and Gerard Depardieu. It is fair to say that it is in the top ten worst movies I have ever seen, though the relationship that began on that evening probably makes it into the top three of my life, alongside cricket and... well... no just cricket.
The thing I have learned most over that time is this - Helen's taste in movies has not improved much in 25 years.
