Did Larry take his cues from Darren?

Yesterday we wrote about a rapscallion known only as Larry, who took out a full-page ad in the Florida Times-Union pleading for his wife to come back to him. Now we wonder if Larry was inspired by the antics of one Darren Miller. A Welsh courier, Miller also drove his wife batty, and she left him. To try and win her back, he took out an ad in the Cardiff paper that read, “I love you more than words can say. I’m very sorry. I want you back. Your husband Darren.” He also unfurled a roadside banner that read, “Emma Miller, I love you.”

Larry is still waiting. But Darren appears to have succeeded. “I’m flabbergasted really that he has gone to such lengths to try and win me back,” Emma Miller told the BBC. “I’m over the moon. He is not one to show his feelings. I’m quite astounded. … I think he has won my heart. It’s a shame it took something like this to show that he did want me.”
