First off I have a long history of avoiding old men. I know, I know, it sounds horrible but there are some people that are “chick magnets ” I’m an “old man magnet”. It is as if I have a sign saying, “talk to me, please talk to me and tell me trite old jokes that make me wince with pain but often provoke a courteous chuckle.” Exit stage left. So… I usually avoid contact with old men. Yes I’m an agist but for good reasons.
And then in a flash my life changed forever. It happened and it happened at 3pm on March 23rd: I met Senator Bernie Sanders! Yes ladies and gentlemen dreams do come true. The stars aligned and I heard myself saying, “Senator Bernie Sanders I’m an American Mexican and I love YOU!”
With secret service men all around “Bernie” put his arms out and open and poof in a flash I was being hugged by Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s right the Bernie Sanders. You know the man I’ve been writing about. What are the odds?
Stop. Rewind. It is March 23rd and you would see me wearing a Bernie T-shirt saying,”Senator Bernie Sanders I’m an American Mexican and I love YOU!” And then he was swept away by the crowd on route to the Wiltern for his rally.
I can’t stop thinking about Bernie. And I know it is just a matter of time until our paths cross again.
To be continued…
