I said she looked young for her age, I noted
the smooth jawline, firm skin, a nice smile.
she said she worked for the post office delivering mail
for many years
she must have worn sunscreen religiously and a hat.
we said the young couple across the table were
good together, that they would go the distance.
he said he was on a plane all the time for his job
but it was only 45 minutes to the airport at 4 am.
we ate good food and drank wine and cocktails,
I asked how long they had been married and
he said 42 years
that's a long time
I hadn't even gotten married the first time.
they seem like super nice people
We said that we'd look forward to seeing them
