Although begrudgingly, at the request of a friend, I looked at the Macy’s wedding registry website. The women he finally chose posted for toasting glasses, costing $116.00 each. I would have loved him were he dirt poor, and had nothing but his heart to give in return. It’s only the heart that matters. But when finally he realizes this, he’ll get angry, about his choice, about his life, and proceed to hurl the glasses into the fireplace, on the floor, against the wall. $116.00 at a time. I cry today, but move laughing forward with my heart, a true warrior.
