... about being cheeky when you're elderly.

I had just brought Mrs. A. her dessert to finish off her meal. As I was wiping off a nearby table, I asked her if she had had a good day today. She assured me that, yes, she had. It had been so very relaxing and she had spent most of the day reading.

I asked her what she had been reading and she mentioned something about a guarded tower and a queen.

"How exciting," I said.

"Oh, yes. It is. In fact, when I came down for dinner, they were just about ready to ..."

and she drops her voice to a whisper and leans over her strawberries

"... copulate."

Serving dinner always brings the unexpected. Always. ;)

In other non related news, the boy and I have decided that while we are very fond of each other, it is not going to work. A successful courtship - we know that we are not meant for each other. Of course this would happen right as I decide to write about it, but that's ok.

My life can also be exciting. ;)

    Just goes to show that somethings never lose their appeal ;-)
    Disappointing about the boy, but we know its best that you find out sooner rather than later.

    There are some things that are best discovered early. Good luck with your next meeting of the best kind :-) As for the lady... I don't know about you, but I feel encouraged.
    be well,
