HOW I MET MY WIFE
As an 18 year old lifeguard
On top of the world,
I sat alone waiting to save others,
But she shyly approached, smiled
And saved me. It was 1968.
Her smooth, tanned skin
With her pale bikini.
From my perch I stared far too long.
She asked me if I liked the Beatles.
Trying to be cool I asked her why.
She replied, “I could never marry anyone
Who didn’t like the Beatles.”
I jumped off my lifeguard’s chair,
Looked into her innocent eyes and
Told her, “Ringo’s my favorite.”
