60 Days

See these two kids? It was 1996 and they were in love! As young as they were, they had truly found the real thing. She had this cute innocence and sweet disposition, while he had style, and confidence with a pinch of raw animal sex appeal. (I’m just guessing about that last one!) While she had her faults, let’s talk about him, because we know him better.

As time goes on, she discovers this guy has some serious issues with himself. For various reasons, that are far too delicate to mention here, he had problems with self esteem, self worth, self hatred, self image, and even anger and depression. Then he grew up … gained weight … started balding … his knees started to make noise when he walks … and probably the worst yet, HE STARTED TO SNORE!

Today, almost 15 years later, he knows he’s not “all that”. He knows he is the luckiest man in the world, because she still chooses to love him. For whatever reason she sees something special in him; something worth holding on to. Something worth fighting for. And while he may not have that raw animal sex appeal anymore, she makes sure he believes that she still thinks he does (even if she really doesn’t). She chooses to love him everyday, and for that he is extremely grateful.
