Tears and Smiles
On the 28th of April my parents would have celebrated their wedding anniversary. They don’t celebrate “here” any more.
Smartphone alerts are great. If I were in my house, I wouldn’t have the time to think about it. But I was away, basking in the sun…
For that reason, I was curious to discover when I was conceived. Knowing how straight they were, it was pretty easy to discover that I am a byproduct of their honeymoon. If nature functioned well, as it seems, I was fabricated in the second week of their wedding.
For the first time, I realized that they always looked at me remembering love, happiness and, most probably, wild things. And I also realized that, if I were aware of such “subtle detail” long ago, I would have caused them less tears and a whole lot of smiles.
