A striking older man walked into the restaurant I work in, I mean a seriously handsome man. I’m talking Humphrey Bogart kind of good-looking, but with thick dirty blond hair, brown eyes, and professor-like glasses to boot. Anyways, he walked into my work on a mission and asked me if I remember what his wife and her friend order when they come in for coffee. I did, so he asked me to add two cupcakes to that order and handed me his debit card to pay. On his way out he asks me not to tell them who paid, “Tell them it’s from a secret admirer.”
The ladies LOVED it when I told them that their order had already been paid for. They blushed and giggled like two school girls, trying with everything in them to get me to tell them who paid for it. It was the nicest, sweetest, romantic gesture I’ve seen in a very long time. It takes five minutes to light up someone’s face. It takes five minutes to show someone how much you really love them. They say it’s the thought that counts, right? So, show the person you love that you’re thinking about them.
Thank you to that gentleman for showing me that romance can exist at any age.
