Nice story but a few misunderstandings.
Rory wasn't 'monastic'. He was very subtle and cautious in his flirting.
He was a lovely person but could be a self-righteous pain in the neck sometimes.

Is this referring to the "blasphemy"-bit in that article Flamenca ?

Nope. It's to do with a couple of times Rory cheesed me off, although I didn't tell him that he had :mrgreen:
The first time was when he asked me if I knew how to read palms.
I replied yes for a joke and proceeded to wind him up by allegedly reading his.
At first he took me seriously and then when he realised I didn't really have a clue, he was a bit offhand with me for pretending to know something I didn't.
My feelings were a little bit hurt because I thought he'd realised I was just joking.
When he realised it was a joke he relaxed and joined in the banter, so I forgave him. :)

Another time he stuck up for me when someone had played a mean spirited joke on me.
A 'friend' (and colleague) of mine had told me after badminton one Tuesday night about how good Boots mud face packs were for your skin (even though she knew they weren't because her sister had tried one and it had upset her skin). So I tried it and sure enough my face looked worse for it. Then her sister told me that my 'friend' had told me to put the mud on my face for a joke because she knew it would spoil my skin!
Later Rory was looking at my face so I told him to stop.
He insisted I told him why I didn't want him to look at me.
I didn't want to tell him but he assertively made me, by insisting I told him the reason why.
So I told him about the friend telling me to put mud on my face and the reason I didn't want him to look at me was because I had spots!
He was amused by my naivety but was displeased with the unkindness of the joke.
Coincidentally just after I told him, the 'friend' showed up.
Rory quite firmly insisted that she 'explained' herself.
She pretended she didn't know what he was talking about so he elaborated ...
The way he asked her why she'd told me to put mud on face after badminton last Tuesday night was very funny.
Everyone laughed apart from my 'friend' he'd asked.
I think she felt embarrassed and a little ashamed of the 'joke'.
She blushed and tried to laugh it off but I could see she wasn't happy about the way he'd embarrassed her.
At work our desks faced each other and she cold shouldered me for three days.
Worse still and unbeknownst to Rory, she was a personal friend of our boss's boss!
She got her own back on me by telling lies to our boss's boss, saying that I'd said some nasty things about him (very childish).
The boss's boss confronted me about them and didn't believe me when I told him they were untrue, because naturally he believed his personal friend.
So although Rory had been well intentioned and he had been morally right, the end result was that he had actually made things worse for me!
I wasn't too happy with him even though I could see his intentions had been good.

Thanks for clarifying and the interesting stories again Flamenca.
As for the ”friend-story”, you can´t blame him seriously for sticking up for you, can you? ;)
I would have done pretty much the same if that would have happened to one of my friends, by the way :D

Based on what you wrote so far I assume you were sort of friends and/or met quite often?

i too got that feeling flamenca, like you knew rory quite well and used to chit chat with him
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal
