My daughter-in-law

I often run around with Hayden delivering marketing material to the restaurants for my cool part-time gig.

One day we walked into Salsa Brava and as Hayden bellied up to the bar to order the usual,a Shirley Temple with 5 cherries, he noticed his friend Emily having lunch with her grandmother.

He leans over on his bar stool to whisper in my ear. "I'm gonna marry that girl someday," he tells me.

For a moment I think twenty years has flown by and here is my 24 year old son, home from medical school, telling me he is engaged.

And then I flashback to reality....

Although he may just marry that girl someday.

It's a good thing my daughter doesn't read your blog...she'd be shattered if she read this! She's as sure about Hayden as Hayden is about Emily.
