The woman who walked up to their booth had bottle blonde hair that was teased out to never never land. She looked to be about fifty, but her make-up was fit for a four-year-old who was never going to leave the house. Her voice was raspy as she asked what they would like to order. The young man with blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes replied,"Scrambled eggs and bacon, please." The older woman scribbled on her pad of paper, and looked up at the young girl, silently asking what she wanted. "Do you have any fruit?"
"Yes, we do. Do you want a fruit salad? It has blueberries, strawberries, bananas and raspberries."
"Yes, I would like that, if you please," the young girl looked over to the boy and a smile softened her lovely face. The older woman shuffled away, smiling.  Clearly the two lovebirds were shy, they hadn't talked since she walked away. They began to talk, and she smiled to herself, love always has a way of making conversation.
