When I was all of about 17, I fell in love with this boy, a cowboy no less. He was a handsome devil. Tall, sweet talking...sweet smiling. My young heart just fell right at his boot covered feet.
I thought we were doing great. Out dancing on Friday nights. Rodeos on Sunday...I was a barrel racer, and he was a bareback rider. What a pair we made; I thought. When February rolled around, I thought I'd do something clever for him. I knew he'd do something sweet for me. He was just that kind of guy.
So I wrote a little poem professing my undying love and carved the short verse on the bottom of a great big Hershey bar. I was so excited all day, so anxious to give him that wonderful, teenage-girl gift.
That night he stopped by. Up to the house he came, a dozen red roses in his hand and a little bear. He said nothing at all, just handed me the roses and the silly little animal and walked away. I smiled like a love sick fool because on each of the roses there was note tied up with ribbon. And a big note on the bear.
Well, I'm not going to go over what each note said, but I will summarize it for you. Basically, he said he wanted to break up with me. He didn't think he could go with a girl who won more money than him in the rodeos and that he really felt I was too short for him.
Ha! I cut up those roses so fast and ripped the head off of that bear and dumped the whole deal in the trash.
Then I sat down and ate HIS Hershey bar!
What a laugh I have now. That chocolate was really good!
Do you have a heartbreaker in your memory? I'd love to hear about it!
