So I tried dating!
First I had to invent an event worthy of asking her out
I had to steel my nerves and make the call
She said yes!
then I had to make the date memorable
I bought a new sports coat and slacks
the right shirt is in the closet. Is it clean?
I washed my Mustang
put on its black bra
I checked the drive time from her place
A hint from my father-in-law
I got a hair cut, trimmed my beard
Then she asks what she should wear!
For me slacks, shirt, sport coat.
For her, my God;
is it casual, sporty, kind of dressy, dressy,
shoes, boots, silver slippers?
Success!—a great party!
We followed up with more events
Dating is work!
I’m out of touch
My God, it’s been 50 years
just before I got into my Mustang
she calls me off
I got even
I married her!
It was December 2007
