Boy Calls Girl

It is in what looks like the most casual nudges of God
that He brings the extraordinary into our lives.
Boy calls girl.
"I am going to be out your way.
Would you like to go out to dinner?"

And in what seemed like a few moments later,
the waiter approached the table,
"I'm sorry to disturb,
      but the restaurant is closing for the evening."

Our unending conversation
 and our adventures together continue,
    today 34 years after that first date.

"How did you know?"
           I asked him years later.
And quoting a line
             from his grandfather,
 who was a carnival midway barker at heart,
Bill still states with a grin,
  "You buys your ticket,
     you takes your chances."

Follow God.
You never know what He has in mind.
