His friend Bob has a new girlfriend whom Steve would like to meet.
Bob has a lot of single male friends but not many couples so he's happy to meet for a meal and a drink.
I'm happy to go along but I will find conversation difficult with my lack of hearing.
Steve's problem is my age and appearance!
The new girlfriend is in her early 50's and as I'm 71 I'm obviously not impressive arm candy.
Hey ho life's a bitch ain't it!
