Just some thoughts:
Recently as I was driving from my home in Tennessee to what once had been my home area in Indiana when I
passed this house. As I passed this particular house I caught myself smiling.
The house I passed was where a girl I once knew when I was growing up had lived. A girl I had ask out for a date but she kept telling me, “No, I can’t.” I was persistence. She worked at the same place (bank) where I did and I would see her often.
For some reason I think she really did want to go out with me, in fact she told me so. “I would really like to, but I can’t, I just can’t.” Well she never did.
Sometime later I remember sitting with her girlfriend at a Dairy Queen. Her girlfriend said “Larry you know what, she really did want to go out with you, but you know why she didn’t, you lost out on your offer?” “No.” “Well the guy she was dating one, he was older than you and….he had a letter jacket and a cool car.”
Hum… a letter jacket and a cool car. Once upon a time that could be pretty stiff competition I must say.
