Festival shenanigans

Your humble Devil has, with the exception of a wee bit of flirting here and there, not been indulging in the wooing of women at this Festival. The same cannot be said of a large and moderately well-known comedian and actor with whom your humble Devil was drinking last night.

Said gentleman was drinking with your correspondant and a slightly inebriated but rather pretty young lady last night. The young lady was rather more interested in my large friend than myself, which is fine. She then, however, left and my friend and I wandered to some seats and my friend handed over a twenty for me to get the drinks in.

Whilst at the bar and getting the round in, I noticed that the young lady had returned to talk to my large friend. The next time that I turned around, my friend had entirely disappeared from the bar, presumably with said lady.

So I pocketed his change, drank my pint and his, and then gifted his whisky to Peter Buckley-Hill (who appears to be running for a position on the Fringe Committee for the second year in a row).

Ho hum, the fickleness of the Festival, eh...?

UPDATE: I have been leaping to conclusions. Apparently, the gentleman in question had merely been lured away to a disco at C Venues which "was total shit". I still cannot believe that he left his pint and a whisky though. Mind you, I did return his change to him last night: and, yes, it was the very same £5 note that I was originally given...
