I introduced the romantic notion
of an airport kiss.
The type of thing you’d expect to
see in a romantic comedy on the
She lands in a snow storm. He is
waiting where he can see them
At the last minute he thought it’d
be cute to bring a name sign like
they do in the movies.
The door opens. People stir. It
takes a minute or two before
He sees her. She looks around. Her
eyes stop when she sees the sign
handwritten in black marker,
She smiles and their eyes meet.
We joked about an airport kiss
while deep down inside we were
secretly wondering if we’d
ever meet again someday.
