Romance is the icing, but love is the cake. – Anonymous



out on a hike around the lake with the kinders,

and a is walking back with c, close by her side. 

a tells me, ‘he says he wants to marry me.’

i ask, ‘do you want to marry him?’

 a says, ‘yes.’

then a says to c,

‘and i will always sleep when you sleep.

and we could go to the park together.

and we can get ice cream.’

c says, ‘okay.’

as we all walk on, i think about how wise a is with regard to marriage.

if we always sleep when the other sleeps, go to the park together, and get ice cream, 

we might have many happy marriages.
