“I miss you, Eleanor. I want to be with you all the time. You’re the smartest girl I’ve ever met, and the funniest, and everything you do surprises me. And I wish I could say that those are the reasons I like you, because that would make me sound like a really evolved human being …‘But I think it’s got as much to do with your hair being red and your hands being soft … and the fact that you smell like homemade birthday cake”
- Rainbow Rowell
Later on I may tell you about Tim’s many failings as a man
and as a table tennis player.
important first to say the one big thing, I’ve only loved
three men in my life.
My dad was a frosty bugger so that only leaves dear Uncle Desmond,
B.B. King, obviously, and this young man here.
I’d only give one piece of advice to anyone marrying.
We’re all quite similar in the end.
We all get old and tell the same tales too many times.
But try and marry someone kind.
And this is a kind man with a good heart.
I’m not particularly proud of many things in my life,
but I am very proud to be the father of my son.
