I was walking out of the T station tonight on my way home. I turned my head to the left, and saw a young woman on the bench under the wisteria, a young man in a suit in front of her holding up a little black box. In that split second thought, “no, it can’t be”, but then I lip-read her saying “yes!” and taking his face in her hands and giving him a big smooch.
I wanted to cheer, but thought better of it.
But I had a big stupid grin for the rest of the walk home.
So, congratulations, kids! Know that I wanted to cheer, but thought better of it!
