In the land of hook ups, one night stands and worthless sexual encounters, here is a story of love that took place right under our noses.
The queen of them all, writes on her fb wall:
story of the day: today in the salon i saw the cutest old couple.. they were at least 80 and he sat with her while she was under the dryer and held her hand and talked with her... not gonna lie got a little teary eyed from all the sappy old people love. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart ♥ i really wanted to take a picture..
There are several older women who come with assistance to the academy to get their hair done. On this particular day, a husband escorted his bride to get her hair done. I don't know if it was a special occasion or a regular thing that we had all missed on prior days.
About 80 years old, he stood by her side while she got her hair done, held her hand while under the dryer. They looked kind of shriveled up sitting together under the big dryers and I wished I had snapped a picture. They looked around and at each other for about a half an hour, just content to be together.
This was a beautiful picture of steadfast love that we rarely see. I know that my husband will be that man when he's 80. He knows how important it is for me to get my beauty fix on and loves me ever so dearly. I don't hope for that man tomorrow, I have him today.
