TRUE STORY…NOT Walmart this time! LOL
I’m in the middle of no where in Missouri. I’m doing laundry on a Friday night in the hotel where I’m staying before I get involved in some evening activities. There’s a guy sitting on the table waiting for the final spin to finish. He’s a young Clint Eastwood type (about 50ish so I thought); I’m looking like the stepdaddy from Baby Boy with my jumper on, some athletic socks, and some flip flops. We size each other up and IT BEGINS:
Clint: Hey Dere!
(He’s from North Carolina by way of Detroit…NO LIE)
Me: What’s up Bruh!
(I call everybody, “bruh”!)
Clint: It looks like a HOT NIGHT of waRshing clothes for us! LOL
Me: Yup, let’s get this party started! LOL
Clint: I called my wife and told her that I wish that she was HERE….
….so she could waRsh these clothes for me!! LOL
Me: I’m SURE that it didn’t go over well with her! LOL
Clint: She fussed a little then we LAUGHED! After 49 years of marriage, she KNOWS that I LOVE her to the MOON AND BACK!!
Me: 49 YEARS…you MUST have gotten married when you were TWELVE!
Clint: No, I married her when I was 20! I’ll be 70 years old next year!
Me: WOW, that’s a LONG time and you don’t look 69 AT ALL!
I listen as he talked about the first time that he laid eyes on her, how they got married quickly, she went to Germany WITH HIM when he joined the military, and they’ve been IN LOVE since the FIRST DAY!
Me: I’ll tell you what…I’ve got something for you to give to your wife! We’re going to record a letter to your wife in the middle of a song that I have titled DEAR GOD! You can say EVERYTHING that you’ve always wanted to say and the song will be CUSTOMIZED just for her!
He looked at me like….You’re fresh out of prison! I’m not sure if I believe that you can sing a song like that! He didn’t SAY IT; He had that “look” though!! LMBO! So…. ….I sang the song RIGHT THERE!!
He just STARED AT ME!! LOL
When I finished, he didn’t say a word at first! Then, slowly he said…
Clint: That’s going to BLESS my wife! Thank you! Thank you so much!
Me: It’s GOD, bruh! What’s the chances of two strangers….a Black and White man talking about a 49 years old UNCONDITIONAL LOVE in a Laundry Room …IN MISSOURI!! I GOT YOU, bruh!
We left, I gave him my email address, he sent me an email and thanked me AGAIN, and I sent him the song so that he could write HIS letter to his wife! I hope that GOD allows us to meet again on July 22, 2016…..for his 50th anniversary!! PRAY FOR US!!
