Musings of An Old Man

by Brian K. Moore


Phyllis had a cute little characteristic which I have never seen in anyone else. Sometimes she would laugh while she was talking. It made her kind of hard to understand. But it was cute. At times I thought of telling her that if she wouldn’t laugh while she was talking, I could understand her better and I wouldn’t have to ask her to repeat.

I never did it. I thought, even way back then, that there could come a time when I would give the world to hear that laugh while she was talking.

The time has come and I’d give the world.
