Matthew and I decided to go to the Mississippi River and take a boat ride up the Mississippi. We were so excited about it and decided to leave early in the morning.
When we got there the first thing we did was stand in line to buy tickets. Someone behind us said,
“Kids in love make me sick.”
We couldn't believe our ears, and decided not to respond to that hateful statement.
While on the boat we saw this person again and she came up to us and apologized and told us,
“When I was a kid, I was in love but after about six months he left me for another girl. I have never been able to get over that.”
We told her how sorry we were (and we truly were) but we were there to take a boat ride.
Yes, we were kids in love and we had a blast on the boat ride. We hope she did too.
