Embarrasing moment on the ferry!

I mortified myself on the ferry this afternoon. Julie and I had been up to Pittenweem for the Arts Festival and were on the ferry back this afternoon. We wandered into the bar, joined Martin and had a nice chat. During the conversation Martion said," Have you heard that Robin Cook has died?" I got a terrible shock. Robin Cook from Kildonan is an old family friend. I was thinking of his wife & children and the tears started welling. I asked what had happened and Martin apologised as he hadn't realised I knew Robin. He told me that he had collapsed while out hill walking and asked if I wanted to see the paper. I was thinking how I was going to tell my mum, I took the paper to look for the funeral announcement and Martin said,"It's on the front page." This suprised me as although Robin is well known I wouldn't have thought The Herald would put his demise on the front page. I looked down and there was a photo of The Politician Robin Cook. I burst out laughing and Julie and Martin looked at me as if I'd gone barking mad. So not only did I burst into tears in public but I did it by mistake! Boy do I feel daft!
