Griff sends Ida the Rummy League table of results on the sly and she is firmly at the top. He suggests options for going to the cinema for their date on Saturday, annotating some titles with !! to "signify extreme Doubt as to Entertainment Value."
He discusses routes for getting to the Free Trade Hall for a concert and admits that "it was ridiculous of me to allow my personal feelings about some aspects of Church management and policy to intrude themselves into doings at Birch," specifically the choir. Having "a rather cold deal by one or two members of the congregation, there is no need for me to criticise the rest of them." Very mature.
He's going to listen to the radio and "ought to practice some sticky bits of Gerontius."
