I’ve done stupid things in my life you know.
Yes, it’s hard to believe I know. When I was young and my hormones were raging.
You have a list of them?
Oh yes, I was once in love with Gus Low. He lived on the farm next door. He had his own plane and all that. I was young and fickle and so I decided to show Gus how much I thought of him. We had an old cart and with our our draught horse, Nelly, we scoured our creeks finding stones to create a love heart. I built it on top of Sugarloaf Hill where I knew Gus would be flying over.
How did it go? Was Gus impressed?
I’ve no idea. Dad made me return the rocks, said I was using up valuable grazing land, so that was the end of that.
I would have been impressed if I saw it.
No, you wouldn’t, you’ve hardly a romantic bone in your body.

I love the last line PERFECT!
Thanks so much Jen
You’re very welcome!
Aw, such a romantic gesture ruined by practical papa!
I think I detect a tiny hint of jealousy there. What a lovely story.
Thanks so much
Love it. It’s kinda fun and yet serious
Thanks Crispina hope you are doing well.
I am indeed, thank you, Michael. It’s been an eventful year so far, but I’m surviving. Hope you’re likewise 🙂
Yes doing ok. We’ve come out of lockdown this week after about 3 months of it. Things can only improve 😀
I hope so, Michael. I think we become immune to media and the panics, if not to the virus, the new normal seems to be acceptance
Loved this Michael. Last line was a tad sad!
Oh, the travails of youth.
All that hard work for nought. 😌
Sometimes that’s how it goes.
