i LOVE older men in cowboy hats who walk with carved walking canes, feel free to put their arm around you and say, "why lil' lady your purt'neer aglowin."
how beautiful is that?
yes, it happened to me on my way into the perinatologist's office. a total stranger opened the door to the medical building and just slid his arm down around my shoulder once i'd passed through. he was seventy if he was a day, smelled of pressed startch and cologne, and had the sexiest southern drawl i think i've ever heard.
i put my arm around him and said, "you must be a native Texan."
"uh-course," he said as he let go of me.
i smiled, "it's so nice to be treated like a lady."
he actually tipped the brim of his hat and said, "it's as it should be."
i've been smiling ever since. oh, how i LOVE this state and it's Good 'Ol Boys!
