quarter of a century

25 years.

We met at Shoney's.
He worked nights; I worked days.
(except Fridays - then I worked both)
He started coming in a lot after school.
He always sat in the atrium
and ordered onion rings and a Coke.
I always brought him a monkey bowl of parmesan cheese
and a bottle of ketchup.
And of course, my charming smile.
He blew straw wrappers at my other customers.
I may have flirted a little.
What can I say?
He was so stinkin' ca-ute!!
We started dating  May 18th.
And well,
the rest, as they say,
is history.

Here's to fifty more years
and lots more onion rings with ketchup and parmesan cheese

Tyler, I love you more than words can say!
