Danger while shopping

Gentlemen, I have a confession to make. Today, I had a little palpitation
of the heart - nothing disastrous or dangerous, you understand, but
I went down into town with my Dear Lady Bride, to do a little shopping. Our
town centre is pedestrianised, that is, what used to be a busy road,
thronged with traffic, is now closed to vehicles, leaving it for foot
However, we have system whereby certain diabled people, myself included,

She was a bonny lass, I have to admit, and, due to the glorious sunshine
and very warm conditions, she was wearing a pretty flowered dress, low cut.

My poor old heart started to go pitter patter, pitterpatt,

Fortunately, she left after a couple of minutes.
I'm OK now, my poor ole heart has settled down, my metabolism has been
sorely tried and tested, and I don't think I will be the same again - ever!

Sounds to me as if it was the "real Goromoff challenge"
it was, Stan - I think I will go back tomorrow to see if I pass or not!
good move. you need to keep going back until your heart retains a normal
beat... even if it means going every day... :)
