This afternoon I was reminded of my childhood sweetheart. My first boyfriend.
Annie had been singing Bon Jovi “Living on a Prayer” and an image of Patrick came to mind. It was his favourite song.
We were so young. Elementary school.
Annie gawked “What?!”
I stared off into space dreamily. “He was in grade 7. I was in grade 5. Or grade 6. He was wearing a red flannel shirt and jeans when he lip sync this song” I giggled like a school girl. “He was so hot!”
The drive thru team stared at me like I grew horns. “Weren’t you a bit young?” Annie asked.
I shrugged. I giggled again “he would always call me his sweetheart”
“This side of you is scary” Annie’s nose scrunched up as if she smelled something foul.
I smiled, “I can be nice you know”
“How about you don’t”
The drive thru team laughed.
