Inspired by NYT Tiny Love stories, here’s my attempt at an 100 word love story.
We met over green beer oh-so-many years ago. A college St. Patrick’s Day party before I was old enough to (legally) drink. With the luck of the shamrock, our chemistry was immediate. The room narrowed and it was only him and me. The beer lost, connection found. We talked and talked, clearly blessed by the gift of gab–another part of our green beer, Irish-themed meeting? Love at first sip, at first sight…or maybe the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Many years, two sons, two daughters-in-law, and three grandsons later, we’re still inseparable. Leprechaun green beer luck?
Bless you both! Today would be our 37th anniversary, our scavenger hunt marriage in Havana, Cuba!
Love this 100 word slice- perfectly timed! Favorite line- “ With the luck of the shamrock, our chemistry was immediate.”
I love the NYT love stories too and this one, 100 words to capture your chance meeting and amazing longevity is brilliant. Kudos to you!
What a lovely love story. You should send it to the New York Times next year before St. Patrick’s Day, and maybe they’ll publish it.
Kim, congratulations on a long and inseparable union. It is a tiny green love story, and a timely day to tell it. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
This is perfection. I love Tiny Love Stories. ❤️ And how fun! A St. Patrick’s meet cute.
So lucky 🍀 Glad you met your person, how sweet!!
A lovely 100 word love story. I really enjoyed how you subtly worked in all the St. Patrick’s Day references. It made the story really poetic. Thank you for sharing!
Nice job working in all those St Patrick’s day references. This is such a sweet love story! I especially like “The beer lost, connection found.”
What a beautiful love story!
Very very well done! Not only 100 words but themed throughout! It was fun to read your magical love story!
