SIGH - Be Still My Beating Heart: A Killer LINE!?!?!? (Best I've Ever Heard!)

Dallas is a high crime area. Not only do women take self-defense courses, women try to remain always vigilant, always cautious. So what does it take to make women throw caution to the wind and forget everything they ever learned about personal safety? 

Check this story out:

I recently heard the very best line ever! It had me dopey for hours - and then I told my husband.

Here's what happened~I had dashed into a local Dallas grocery store for some milk. 10 min later, a Texas downpour had me aghast. My car was miles across the parking lot. I fidget wondering if I should dash for it.
I'm in shorts, after all, does it really matter if I get soaked?

He: (a warm, masculine voice right behind me) I have an umbrella and if you'll point out your car, I believe I can get you to it dry.

Me: Looking up (seeing the huge umbrella) and then I point - um, there. It's the blue one.

He: Let's go ...

We dash together, reach the car, and he opens the door.
I'm in, dry and grateful. Smiling up my appreciation at this wonderful handsome fellow.

Me: Thank you so much!

He: (right before he closes the door) No problem. Glad to do it...after all, sugar melts....

OMG!!! -SUGAR melts - was that the best line ever?!?!? I was utterly charmed to my toes. Home and in a happy daze, the dopey feeling stays with me until my husband is home from work. I had to tell him, of course I did. Served him right for always taking me for granted, anyway.

Hubby: And if he had been a serial killer, you'd be dead right now.

T h u d.
Awww, I noticed my hubby tucked an umbrella in my car- my true hero!

There you have it. Just one unguarded moment and everything learned is tossed out the window. It may be easier than thought to become the next statistic.

Hi Devonia. That is good. Sugar melts. Now you went in for milk. Did you have sugar too? lol...
Your husband's response sounds exactly like what my husband would have said too.
And yes, that is the best line ever. We all need to hear something like that every once in a while.

Devonia: Did you hear me laugh out loud all the way to Texas? Scene out of our long marriage. Why can't we have just one Scarlett moment? We have husbands to shock us back to reality.

To funny! I had a similar line pulled on me! I got out of my car to pump gas, it was freezing..a guy pulled up in his car, got out and put his coat around my shoulders..then told me I was so hot, I could melt a frozen food isle. Cute!

Thank you so much! and back atcha on my shabby site!!

Devonia said...

Siobhan: You bet I blushed -right to my dyed roots! It was soooo unexpected!

Ann: There are not many handsome strangers with killer lines in my life... so yes, I appreciated this one.

Stacy: Deep, masculine, warm SOUTHERN drawls is a big part of that Texas charm. lol

ga.farmgirl: Is your mansion posted yet?!?!? Gotta get over and see! NOOOOO, I didn't add sugar!!! Hmphh! Hubby was very disturbed that I had let my guard down a little rainstorm blew up. Interesting how we think we've trained ourselves to be cautious and then - there we are - at risk - when we're caught not thinking. My hubby's comment was rather chilling. but darn, it sure was nice.

linens&laurels: Hey Nan, ahhhhh - Scarlet... my one moment. Reality arrived with a real thud though.

Delilah: I believe your line topped mine! Food must be really in!?!?

What a great line! I love that! Some men know all the right things to say and some just don't have a clue! My only problem is the ones I've dated that are like that end up being jerks. They tend to be all words and no substance. It's the clueless ones that make better husbands!
