(Reading aloud with a southern accent is recommended. Try it.) It was sophomore year when she met him. He was a second string quarterback, short and stocky. She didn’t know why she liked him. She kind of wished she didn’t. She just couldn’t help it. They dated off and on through the end of high school and then lost touch when she went off to find work in a bigger town. Five years later, she was working as a waitress at the Dixie Inn when he walked in. He had grown about 4 inches, slimmed up. He caught her eye and looked away at first. She walked over to take his order and he took her hand. He said he’d been looking high and low for her and now that he found her he didn’t want to let go. Eight years later they were married by common law. By then, they’d turned a trailer into a ranch by adding a sidecar room. They painted the house blue to match her eyes. A charming place, in the right light. That was then. Now, the place is a heap, just like their common law marriage. #shortstory#abandonedplaces#abandoned#blue#reallife#she#lightenup#storytime
Finally having lunch at 3:30, not hangry or shaking (hello fat adaptation!). . We had a loooooong day that was consumed with buying all the birthday decorations and baking stuff for Saturday’s festivities. . The girls behaved in Party City🙏 even though they touched every single thing they had for sale🙄, and we are all set for the party....I think, I’m hoping for no last minute surprises.
