Cafeteria Love

I observed something interesting today. I watched two people on a date. What, may you ask, makes that so much different than any other Friday night at the movies or any night of the week at Charleston's? These people were in the cafeteria.

I don't know if they would term themselves as on a date or not. Technically they would have paid for themselves and neither one provided any kind of transportation, but in my mind they were on a date.

What first caught my attention was her laughter. It almost sounded like a small child's giddy laughter and I smiled when I heard it. I looked up from my French homework to see what was going on and I saw him rather sillily entertaining her. Maybe to you more sophisticated daters out there he was acting rather childish. But she was laughing and smiling and they seemed to be enjoying each other's company. This went on until after I left and I'm sure they were having alot of fun.

Why, do you ask, are you telling us this? Well, Valentine's Day is nearly upon us. For most of us without Valentines, it is just merely another day that we are even more reminded of our singleness. But maybe we're overlooking an incredible person or moment in our day. Maybe we need to just fall victim to that special sort of cafeteria love.
