FOWC with Fandango — Partner

Note: I am responding as these challenges show in my reader!
AKA Significant Other, spouse, dancing pairing, business associate, car. Quite a variety.

Sometimes we can misread the signs and think we’ve found ‘The One’ when all they want is to live the life of a single person and someone to run the home.

I remember going on a foursome with my sister and her fiance. My ‘date’ was his friend and to say we didn’t hit it off is an understatement. This was proven when we went up on the dance floor and he turned on a sixpence leaving me on my own.
Ho hum. I danced anyway to ‘Come up and see me, Make me Smile’ by Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel. Oh the memories!

The business associate could have been had by default, but I wasn’t stupid enough to let him use my share of the equity in the house for his venture, though I was quite happy for him to buy me out. He didn’t and things did not go well for him.

But the Partner vehicle………… wonderful! Economical to run, comfy, and when we were house hunting in 2014, we even slept in it!

Here then is a little ode for Fandango’s challenge today

I had an SO who wasn’t a spouse,
The one with which I had shares in a house.
A dancing partner who took to the floor,
Only to turn and run straight out the door.

Of the business category, much was lacking,
But the Peugeot was definitely not slacking!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
