Take Away 75 - Sweet Moments

I was having my nails done the other day and there was a little old lady who had just had her hair coiffed (love that word). A guy who came in to have his hair-dresser daughter cut his hair had just gotten out of his chair.  Here is the dialogue that made my day:

Guy to old lady:  "You look beautiful!"
Old lady:   "Well, thank you."
Guy:  "Are you single?"
Old lady: "No, I'm married.  Wait, he's dead. Yes, I'm single."
Guy: "Are you on Facebook?"
Guy's Daughter:  "Dad!!!!"
Guy to Daughter:  "Hey, I'm a lady's man!"

There wasn't a woman in the place who didn't tilt their head to the side and say "Ahhhhhh".  Next, the guy asked his daughter if he could go get her something for breakfast. She asked him what he would bring her, and he said the magic words every woman I know loves to hear, "Anything you want."

TAKE AWAY:  There are tender moments almost every day.
Sometimes I have to listen carefully for them, other times
I'm in the right place at the right time.


  1. Loved, loved, loved, reading their conversation! Thanks for sharing it.

    1. Oh, I wish everyone in the world could have been there to witness how very sweet it was. I love those moments!
