Thursday Inspiration — What a Night

I was a senior in high school and I finally mustered the courage to ask her, my fantasy girl, to be my date for the winter dance. She accepted my invitation and we agreed to meet the night of the dance at the school gym.

I arrived before her. The gym had been all decked out to look like a winter wonderland and my nerves were on edge as I awaited her arrival.

I got a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach when she walked into the gym. She was stunning, everything I dreamed that she’d be. When I saw her smile and wave at me, I felt a rush like a rolling ball of thunder that hit me and almost knocked me over. It seemed as if my head was spinning around and something had taking control of my body.

She walked up to me and planted a kiss on my cheek. I was totally mesmerized by her and immediately fell under her hypnotic spell. All I could do was give in to sweet surrender.

Oh, what a night that late December back in sixty three was.

    When we still believed in magic, and that life could cast a spell, we allowed others to enchant us. Until we gamed that the fix was in, and life was… what the hex? My, Oh my. I miss the back then. Which you tenderly capture.
