A tale for the ages on Valentine's Day 2009

With the grim news these past weeks culminating in yesterday’s Friday the 13th Massacre, I though I’d share a tender story of unlikely love on this 14th of February.

In a city park stood a statue of a man and a women frozen in a caress of love, their love unconsummated for many long years.

A man and a women

Early one Valentine’s Day, when the sun had barely risen, an angel appeared before the statue and said, “Since the two of you have brought such enjoyment to so many visitors, I am granting you your greatest wish. I hereby give you the gift of life. You have thirty minutes to do whatever you desire to satisfy your deepest longings.”

And with that command, the two figures came to life. They gazed into each other’s eyes for a moment, and then wordlessly taking each other’s hand, the couple merrily dashed off towards the nearest woods and dove behind a row of bushes.

The angel smiled to himself as he heard them giggling, punctuated by the sounds of bushes rustling and twigs snapping.

After fifteen minutes, the two unexpectedly emerged from the bushes, a bit flushed and out of breath. Startled, the angel looked at his watch and said to them, “You still have fifteen minutes to go.”

The male gazed lovingly at his companion and asked, “Do you want to do it again?”

“Oh yes, my love, yes,” she purred…

White Candor on Red Passion

“only this time you hold the pigeon down and I’ll crap on its head!”

Happy Valentine’s Day to my fellow RedStaters!

May your trysts today likewise satisfy your deepest longings.
