55 Courting


She was the worst girlfriend he had ever had: sneaky, abusive, and a thief to boot! Most of his friends said to dump her. A few recommended revenge. But one, more romantic than the rest, said to show her his true feelings instead. "Court her," he suggested.

And after due consideration, he did just that.










 
Note: My husband took this picture inside Philadelphia's Colonial Courthouse while on a trip last month.

Got a story you can tell in 55 words? The G-Man wants to know!

Is this a true story?
But it IS a story.
And a damn good one at that!

@G-Man: This is someone's truth, no doubt, although it falls well outside my personal range of experience.
