40th Anniversary Report: If You See This Man Kick Him In The N** (Nose)

This man was hitting on The Wife today!!!  He even kissed her!  I was just relaxing in the apartment this evening, when The Wife decided to go over to the Luxembourg Garden, a few blocks from our house to look at the flowers and try to find a sculpture she heard about today at a museum near us.  When she came back, an hour or so later, she was all smiles.

She had been taking pictures of flowers when he came up and started talking to her.  He could not speak a word of English, and she could speak very little French, but 60 percent of English words are french in origin, just pronounced differently, so there was some communication going on.  He was telling her that she was "tres belle," and wanted her to go for coffee and to get something to eat.  She declined and he pointed to her ring finger (which has been ring-less for many years) and asked her if she was married.  She assured him she was, and she had to get back to her apartment to her husband, but he gallantly insisted on walking her to the gate of the garden, and then gave her the double air kiss on each cheek -- you could say he french kissed her,.  And get this -- she was not angry with him; she told me she was flattered!!  Harumph!  Here I have been refraining from flirting with all the beautiful young french women we have encountered in deference to our 40th anniversary and she is off being air-bussed by an old french coot.

The first thing on the agenda when we get back to the states is to get our wedding rings resized.  I don't want any competition from any old geezers -- particularly when I've become one myself.   Before we leave, I may just go cruise the Luxembourg Garden myself to see who I can find to flirt with.  It would only be fair.

John, you are much better looking than this guy, and I bet you are way smarter than he. So, no worrying needed. :)

Now, now, John. I seem to remember a few posts ago you were boasting about conversing with a beautiful, red-head from Poland.

We've been away, so I've missed all of your "reports" so far. I'll have time to breathe and read them all this weekend. Just wanted to say that Mom and Dad went to Cuba just prior to Castro's takeover. Mom was having coffee with a debonair Cuban in the hotel lobby. I don't know how this "date" came about, but Mom was pretty annoyed to catch a glimpse of my poorly-concealed dad hovering behind a nearby potted palm.

John, Let's hope Rosalee never finds out about us.
