i met a man while wearing this...


{the husband is ok with it}...  you see, this man was grocery shopping. 

I have a habit of sorts where sometimes when I'm by myself  in public, people just start talking to me for no reason.   And usually, I oblige with a conversation.  On this day, I made a run for some fresh vegetables and fruit.  I'm picky about my veggies so I was scouring over the spinach, making sure it was just right.  Seems I wasn't the only one who likes to be meticulous about their greens. Walter, the man I met, is too.

 Walter was picking up some things for his sweet little wife of 25 years.  Twenty-five amazing years.  Being the newlywed that I am, I let Walter know I was enjoying the beginnings of married life and hoped my sweet boy would talk about me with the same affection and love he has for his wife twenty-five years from now.  What's the secret I had to ask.  How have you managed to stay together all this time? One simple thing...  the wife is always right!

I smiled and he did too. 

I left Walter picking over more vegetables.  When I arrived home I sent a message to my sweet boy simply saying "I Love You." Oh, and that I picked up a lottery ticket. Which of course had nothing to do with anything except for the fact that I....#hopewewin and that this wife is right about the numbers she picked.
