Renaissance Man

| Romantic | August 31, 2012

(I am at a renaissance fair, walking through the crowds in period dress. Two boys, about my age,
also in costume, come up to me.)

Boy #1: “Fair, sweet lady, I have never cast my eyes on such a beautiful soul.”

(I look a bit embarrassed, as people around us start to stare.)

Boy #2: *turns to boy #1* “But this Lady is mine. You will never gain her honour!”

(Both boys draw swords and begin to duel, with the first boy winning. He then drops to one knee in
front of me.)

Boy #1: “My lady, would you care to walk the gardens with me, hand in hand?”

(I accepted. We got talking, and two years later we are still together!)
