With the guys

Today five married men took me off for the day to share their wisdom. They didn't get very far.

[Making bridge-hopping look difficult]

Instead I demonstrated a complete lack of grace, but then I wasn't a student in Cambridge so my body hasn't adapted to climbing onto bridges from punts travelling underneath. This is the lowest bridge you can climb over on the Cam. Let's face it, there was no way I'd reach any of the higher ones.

[Five wee drams]

A final challenge was harder, but more fun. With a little prompting I correctly identified three out of five whiskies. Clearly more research is required here.

So what did I learn? Er... I'm not sure. Whisky good, bridges bad? It's not the conventional marriage preparation syllabus.
