My life has never been the same

B Dalton Southtown 

Wow, what can I say? Twenty-four years ago tomorrow at 9:20 p.m. was the day my life changed forever—but I didn’t realize it at the time. This picture shows where it happened: B. Dalton Bookseller, Southtown Mall, Fort Wayne, Indiana. I was working at the time at the Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, and this bookstore was where my own personal bookseller, Roger, worked (sort of like a personal shopper, but much better). It was after the mall closed at 9:00 p.m. and I had headed down that way to meet him after work. And then it happened! We were standing behind the Sidney Sheldon display (just to the right of center in this photograph) and Roger, always the perfect gentleman, asked if he could kiss me. And from the moment of our first kiss, my life has never been the same.

Gentlemen, if any of you are reading this post, I tell you from the bottom of my heart: women want to be treated like ladies. I had been kissed by many men before, and I’ve been kissed by many men since then (but no more—these lips are taken—by the man who kissed them that night), but when this man asked if he could kiss me, I was utterly smitten. How could I refuse? And it was wonderful . . . and it is wonderful. Roger, I love you.
