Not exactly. I remember many years ago I worked with an old guy who was a mason and got quite friendly with him, he seemed to take a shine to me, we
would drink together now and then. He was a former officer in the RAF.
Anyway, I used to quiz him a little about freemasonry and although told me little to nothing about it, he did show me the handshake.
One evening, over a beer, he asked me if I would be interested in being initiated or being recommended to his local lodge. I don't really know how it
works but whatever the case, I refused to be a part of it. My mum had always said they are dodgy for want of a better word.
ETA: PETITION, that's what he was on about. I couldn't remember the terminology.
His attitude towards me changed after that and we drifted apart, my life has gone somewhat downhill since those days(10 years ago).
I occasionally wonder if my life would have been better if I had followed him down his little rabbit hole but I guess I will never know.
I tell myself I followed the light but part of my wishes I had at least looked into it. Darkside? Maybe...
