Uncle George



Uncle George was an ex-army officer who now spent his days jogging and chatting with others at the neighborhood park. That didn't matter to me.

What mattered was that he had a lovely daughter, prettier than pretty and more beautiful than any adjective that can ever be used to define her grace.

I wanted to marry her.

I met Uncle George one evening and started a conversation. He seemed pleased with me.

Gaining in confidence, I asked innocently about her daughter.

He laughed, "Oh ya. Do come home next Sunday. It's her engagement."

Ok. Time to find another uncle.
