What if I hadn’t seen the paper?
What if I hadn’t written?
What if he hadn’t replied?
What if I hadn’t responded?
What if I hadn’t answered the phone?
What if I hadn’t gone to the pub?
What if I’d chickened out?
What if he’d not turned up?

We met as a result of an ad in the local paper.
That was twenty eight years ago and we’ve been married for twenty six of those.
If any of the above had occurred, I would not have found my Soul Mate.
Funny how things work out.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Wonderful pondering on love and the what ifs! What if we hadn’t both moved to the West Coast within months of each other? What if he hadn’t answered an ad for a roommate at the house where my old friend lives? Funny, too, because our paths probably crossed before, and almost did if he had moved east a few years earlier. Guess some what ifs provide the answer — fate and love win out.
    Thanks for participating. I enjoyed your ponderings!
