At first sight

I had a customer come into the store today and told me he loved my hair. It was the same colour as his wife's he said. They had been married for 46 years and then she had been taken away from him. He said I reminded him of her and showed me her photo. It was taken the day after they met and two weeks later he asked her to marry him.
He looked me in the eye and said, "You should believe in love at first sight because it is real."
I said, "I know because it happened to me. I just didn't get the 46 years that followed."
We both looked at each other and wondered who had suffered the greater loss.

Sometimes there are no words for how you feel and sometimes you haven't nothing left to give. 
Sometimes holidays from yourself would be good.
For those times it is okay to just eat pizza.
