Sculpted memories


©J.S. Brand

The things you remember are the things that are strange. The ones out of the ordinary, that are often nothing like expected.

When Mario told her he had a surprise-picnic planned, what immediately sprung to mind was something romantic, in a green field, with tall trees, flowers, silence and plenty of fresh air for them to breathe in and relax. They would also preferably be alone.

What happened though, was something Marisol could never forget. Mario took her to the neighbourhood park, where he prepared a mini-barbecue, under a sculpted tree.

He said this would surely create a lasting memory.

  2. Mario had the right idea, I’m sure it worked for both of them

  3. I kinda’ like what Mario did. Heck, next time he might just take her into the woods. To each his own.

  4. You have to consider the source. My wonderful husband surprised me once, years ago, by taking me on a picnic in February, on Valentine’s Day. It was very cold, there was snow all over, and all we had to sit on was snow-covered logs. He built a fire and we roasted hot dogs.

    Not my own idea of a romantic date, but HE loved it 🙂

  5. At least he planned something – hope he gets it right next time. Three strikes and he’s probably out.

  8. Ha ha – well it probably did (create a lasting memory) but maybe not in the way he wanted! Nicely done.
