My wife has gone out for the day as she knows that she will not get any work out of me for the next 6 hours. The Olympic road race is on and although I was contemplating going up to the route to watch the riders fly past in one big pelaton for about 10 seconds--I have decided to stay and home and put on a few lbs. sitting in front of the box. I would have liked to "Experience" the race- even it was only for a short space of time but as I could not get tickets for Box Hill- I'll stay at home.
But the wife has gone to London to see a show and take in a bit of shopping. She has just phoned me up and she came out of Harrods to be informed that if she wanted to cross the road- it is 1/2 mile that way or 1 mile the other. There is an Olympic event going on and the road is closed.
Yep--You have guessed it- she has front row seats for the Road Race as it passes by right in front of them in 20 minutes time.
Gutted is not the word.
