550. When Patsy fell in love
© Bruce Goodman 13 April 2015
When Patsy fell in love with Jock it was like… like… it was wonderful! Raindrops were pearls of sunshine. Her pet canary sang ten times more melodiously than ever, ever, before.
She had always wondered what name in life she would end up with. Yes, she would take her husband’s name for sure: Mrs P. Barker? Mrs P. Millman? Mrs P. Nelson? Mrs P. … As a teenager, she had practiced with every boy in the class; her signature, that is, with their surnames.
And now the man of her dreams had come into her life. He proposed! Patsy said “Yes!”
Mrs P. Ennis.
Patsy thought she might keep her own name.
