I'm Sure Some Fairytales Do Come True!
Although I've not been successful in the 'happy-ever-after' stakes, it doesn't mean I'm not a romantic at heart. I am...the biggest. It's just that no one's ever searched hard enough to discover this secret I now share with you in a moment of weakness! Promise me you won't tell a soul! Memorise this message, chew it up and then swallow it at the threat of 'The Rack'!
I chatted with a young lass at the check-out of my local supermarket this morning, being one of the first in the store it was still quiet, which enabled us to pass a bit of banter back and forth. She told me her fiancee is arriving from Alberta, Canada in June. Naturally, she is very excited about this prospect, finding it difficult to contain her eagerness, her warm zest for life. Her joy, anticipation, impatience, hope and excitement were contagious. Her effervescence made me happy, too. I said to her that the year will probably fly rapidly by for me as is their wont to do these days, but for her, it will seem the next five months or so will take forever, passing by at a snail's pace.
Her eyes sparkled as she spoke with me. Her smile was intoxicating. How could I not be touched by her genuine joy? It was enchanting. It was a wonderful beginning to my day.
Love is grand. And there should be much more of it!
