John married a nurse who came from a small village in the Philippines.

Visiting her folks in a place where there was no electricity and running water was quite an eye-opener. He learned to appreciate things he usually took for granted.

On their first night, he told Dolores that he needed to take care of business.

She pointed to the outhouse and then handed him a newspaper.

“What am I suppose to do with it?” he asked. “You know, I can’t read in the dark.”

“Believe me,” Dolores smiled, “Without toilet paper, it will come in handy.”

She was right.

High school was over. Headed to California, Emma would soon be leaving the neighborhood where she grew up. She decided it was time to break up with her boyfriend too.

While she was wild and a free spirit, Tom was the typical Boy Scout.

Emma knew he loved her despite her imperfections. But it wasn’t enough to keep the relationship going.

At this point in her life, she was looking for a kindred spirit who shared what others might perceive as character flaws.


She worried that Tom might take it hard. If only she knew, he’d already found somebody new.
