Last Tuesday, I met a gentleman (well-known, respected amongst the Catholic schools in my city) at a religious ceremony. By circumstance/coincidence/serendipity, we sat next to each other in the same pew. Knowing that this would be a long event, I wanted to break the ice before it began (lest there be awkwardness.) I recognized him, anyhow, so I decided to initiate a friendly conversation. (That was a good decision, by the way.)

After the ceremony, we exchanged "Good-bye, it was a pleasure meeting you", &c. He also said, "Call me some time, maybe we can grab lunch." I suppose that is something that people say, but I said, "Alright, sounds good. Do you want my number or...." And he told me to call his office and set something up.

I called yesterday, and his secretary called me today, and we are getting some grub this week. Should be interesting!

I'm not sure, but I think "who's shout?" is an Aussie slang expression that means "who's buying the next round of drinks?". Or, "my shout" would mean "I'm buying the drinks this time." Just guessing.... :?:

Who's taking who to lunch.
By the way, 'semi stranger' is impossible.

"Lunch with a semi-stranger"

Sounds as though it should be the title of a film as the sequel to "Waiting for Godot". :D
