So how are things looking now that we know that Sam originally planned to climb for WCC yet had to "settle" for a trip to see the "gf" in NC? I mean, that's the kind of thing you plan and make time for, not insert as a substitute.
Well, I believe the word used in the PSA was actually “female companion”, anon, and not “girlfriend”, and as Sam seems to have skipped out on Thanksgiving dinner with his “female companion’s” family to go with Cait to a fancy do in London on the Friday night it would seem that Sam would certainly make time for a girlfriend, or a wife, or even for “just a friend” if we are to believe what the press interviews tell us. But, alas, it seems a “female companion” must just make do with whatever time is left over between when all the fun weekend stuff with the wife is done and she heads back to work in Glasgow for the week, until it’s time for Sam to come home on the Friday for that December 2nd thing they have planned…So, yes, anon, things are looking pretty good!!
