I read a very funny article by Dany Mitzman about going to a football match to please her beloved. She hates football. And it rained.
It made me smile though, not least of all from thinking of a lovely friend the story reminded me of – she too has been married to a football fan for many years, and has worked very hard to try to be part of that element of his life – occasionally with a very brave smile. I commend her most highly, for compromise is something we should all try to do.
Dany Mitzman, I’m sure, realised this, and tried … and had it not been for the rain and the crowd’s colourful banter at the referee, and the fact that smoking was allowed in the ground, she might have succeeded in falling in love with the beautiful game too. She didn’t. But at least she tried.
