Getting Frazzled With Madalyn

I first met her when I was only sixty-eight. I was in the burger joint carrying an artificial flower when she darted in. She was wearing a silver bracelet, which caught my attention right away. It really accentuated her Achilles tendon, but I pretended not to notice.

I was about to set the artificial flower down when she paraded beside me. I guess she startled me, and I clumsily dropped the artificial flower right by her feet. We both bent over to pick it up. It was one of those awkward moments, and we both began to get frazzled.

After stumbling apologies, I asked her to go to the electronics store for a Mojito. She accepted, and our relationship took off from there. We didn't even know each other's names yet.

At the electronics store, I learned that her name was Madalyn, and that she was a park ranger. This was fascinating to me, coming from my career as a fortune teller.

I guess it was love at first get frazzled. Some might say we had tops in our eyes, but we felt we were perfect for each other. She was six years younger than I, but the age difference didn't matter to us. Even today, we are still getting frazzled for each other.
