Love at First Sight
Dedicated to Bill & Blanche Tilson
Submitted by Dave
Blanche first saw Bill picking apples in her backyard. She goes out there and tells him to leave her apples alone and be gone. Five years later, Bill sees Blanche at the local bar standing by the jukebox and offers her $300.00 for a date. Flattered and offended, she tells the bartender what had happened and Bill gets kicked out of the bar.
Later that week she hears a knock on the back door. It's Bill. He tells her he is in love with her. She laughs and tells him, "You are married; forget it."
Bill looks her straight in the eyes and says, "I'll be back in one year to get you."
She laughs and says, "We'll see." One year later, Blanche is bartending at the same bar. Bill approaches and asks her if she knows the date. She says, "Yes, it's June 9.""
He says, "Yes, that is right and I'm here to get you." He reminds her of the conversation of a year ago and tells her he's been in love with her all this time, has straightened out his life, and wants her to be his wife. She tells him he has not been too far out of her thoughts either. That was the first day of their lives together and for twenty-two years, they have been happily married.
We will someday honeymoon in Hawaii.
