Walking the dogs just now I came across this sign posted on a light post on the street next to mine. As I read it, my eyes teared up a bit and I did the whole “clutch my hand to my heart and saw ‘awwwwww’ really loud” thing. I even said to the dogs “OMG, isn’t this is the most romantic thing EVER!!??” They responded by peeing on the light post. Typical dude behavior.
But it makes me feel hopeful– about love and life and people in general. This kind of public declaration of adoration and desperate search for “the one that got away” is the kind of stuff you think only happens in the movies. Well, here’s the proof that it doesn’t- and that makes me smile from ear to ear like a total idiot. To be found so enchanting that someone posts signs on your street in order to see you again? Are any of you NOT swooning right now? And if you ARE a dude- take note! This is the knee-buckling kind of romance that makes girls lose their MINDS.
Katie, whoever you are, I hope you see this, and I hope you call him. Know that things like this don’t happen all the time and that there aren’t a bevy of men out there who would do something as sweet and romantic as this. And girl, if you don’t call him, I’m gonna bet about 100 Boston women reading this blog will. Including married ones (ahem!). :)
