Today, the day I had to have my passport picture taken, I broke out in hives. So before stepping into the photo booth I stopped by a grocery store to buy water so I could down my meds.
It was all pretty routine until a song played over the P.A. system.
Around five years ago, I saw Shania Twain's video From This Moment playing on MTV and without thinking I giddily reached for my phone and texted my then boyfriend that the song reminded me of him. And he texted back, promising we'd some day march down the aisle to it.
Cut to present day, and the only aisle where that song and I would meet is at the grocery.
Never has a cashier met a sadder shopper.
