I went for a coffee with Michael Bublé
at the Cheadle Hulme Costa.
We both ordered tea and giggled.
I wasn’t hungry but Michael ordered
a white chocolate Rice Krispy Christmas wreath
covered in green and red sprinkles.
We tried to catch up about the last few years
but other customers kept pestering him for autographs.
He mouthed Sorry to me every time he stood
up for a selfie no matter how many times
I waved away the apology and smiled.
Before we knew it, he was standing on our table
with a member of staff belting out Jingle Bells
while I succumbed to a nibble of his wreath.
