“Sally” left a comment the other day on my Staff page. It was simply this: “Good place to meet an old boyfriend for lunch!” I’m curious. I’m intrigued. And I’m wondering …
Did “Sally” actually meet an old boyfriend here? She was writing from Philadelphia (Internet magic – don’t ask). Was she in Charlevoix recently? And of course, if you’re meeting him for lunch, is he really an “old” boyfriend? Is there any such thing as an old boyfriend, or are all boyfriend connections real, live, and forever?
Is Sally sending a subtle message to an old boyfriend? Maybe they periodically Google “old boyfriend for lunch” to find out where their next meeting place is — same time next year, Neil Simon and all that.
My favorite story has an old boyfriend of mine posing as “Sally” and letting me know he’s going to pay me a visit. No old boyfriends in Philadelphia, though. If any old boyfriends are going to meet me, I need to lose a few pounds, quick. And get my hair done. So give me some notice, will you?
Maybe “Sally” visits random blogs and leaves inscrutable messages to provoke speculation. Just for the fun of it.
Well, Sally? What’s your story? We are all wondering how that lunch turned out.
