Making the magic last
I was walking the dog by the bay.
There's a sidewalk at the end of the sand--a boardwalk for pedestrians, skateboarders, bladers, etc.
It's lovely, especially in wintertime when the tourists have gone (just sayin').
A couple rode past me on bikes, and in mid-pedal they leaned in for a quick kiss.
It was the kind of fun thing you do when you're first dating.
They seemed full of life and energy, and love.
But then I hear "hey, that's illegal"
"that's what's called hormonal bike riding"
That was their two kids.
They've made the magic last between them, and here they were on a family outing.
That's what everyone is looking for.
