Hang on, didn't you?

On my home tonight a woman came and sat on the seat across the isle away from me. I spent some of the journey trying to remember were I'd seen her before. Then as I was getting up to get off the bus I noticed she was standing in front of me and that I knew who she was ...

Her: I you like.

Me: Did you ever play Ophelia in Hamlet at the Unity Theatre?

Her: Ooh err. Yes. That was six years ago ...

Her: You would have seen me completely mad and singing ...

Me: I just thought you were really good.

Her: (laughing) Thanks very much.

We parted company after that, walked our separate ways.
