I cried.
I couldn’t help it. One box of tissues wasn’t enough.
It was mentioned in Sleepless in Seattle.
And they cried too.
So I had to buy it, as I’d never seen it.
To see if it was as sad as they’d suggested.
It was.
And I cried.
Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr in An Affair to Remember, where the Empire State Building played such an important part.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    I remember my Mum buying that film when Sleepless in Seattle came out too! šŸ™‚

    The Empire State has played a lover’s meeting place for so many… but in the two movies mentioned. The best!

    I think I finally have to see it now, too. Great take on the prompt.

    I had a little crush of my own that involved the Empire State Building. Didn’t come to anything, but fun while it lasted šŸ™‚

    You’ve written this very skilfully, making the slenderest storyline into narrative that involves the reader. Well done!

  8. LucciaGray says:

    I love romantic comedies which bring you to tears.
