Man narrates how he met his wife at a cemetery

”My dad died. Classic start to a funny story. He was buried in a small village in Sussex. I was really close to my dad so i visited his grave  alot. I still do. (Don’t worry, it gets funnier.) I always took flowers and my mum visited alot and she always took flowers and my grandparents were still alive then and they always took flowers. My dad’s grave frequently resembled a solid third place at the Chelsea flower show.”

I know it sounds weird but i came to think of him as a friend. I wondered if there was a hidden connections between us, something secretly drawing me to him. Maybe we went to the same school, played for the same football club or whatever. So i goggled his name, and ten seconds later i found him.”

And after that he jumped in the front of the only train going through Balcombe tunnel that Christmas night. That was why no one ever left him flowers. No one excerpt me, of course. I left him flowers. I left him flowers every couple of weeks. Every couple of weeks for two and a half years.”

As i was standing at their graves mumbling apologies, a woman appeared behind me. She wanted to know who i was and why i was leaving flowers for her aunt and grand parents. Awkward.”
