All That Glitters

How did you like Mark?

Seems like a nice boy.

He is. I’m in love with him.

Usually it would take you another whole week to get to this point,

He must be special.

He is. Did you see his car?

Was it the red one parked on my lawn?

It wasn’t parked on your lawn, it just was over the driveway a little.


He ate all the Brazil nuts.


I thought that was why you put them out.


He didn’t play with the kids much.


They’re not his kids. Why should he?


These boys you fall in love with all the time

Never seem to last.

Are you sure you know what you want?


Of course. Someone who is handsome, strong, has nice clothes,

Money to spend, adores me and anticipates my needs.


Smart, loving and caring with a good future doesn’t really factor into your equation then?


Oh Grampa. You’re so old fashioned. That’s why I love you too.
