I’ve Lost My Mind
But, you knew that already, didn’t you, Dear Reader? I’ve lost my mind……..for the color red.
It has always been my favorite color. At least, since sometime in my teens. That I got to bedeck myself in it last night was spectacular for me. I cannot lie, though. Seeing MTM in it almost made me cry.
MTM wore a red shirt once. He doesn’t wear it often, but this one time, it was something else, almost like a fantasy world in my own mind. Only, he was sitting right next to me, asking me a life-altering question.
MTM asked me to go steady on Valentine’s Day, 2003. He wore the same red shirt that he wore last night. He took me on a date to the same restaurant where we had dinner after our black-clad wedding. He sat across the table from me – same red shirt, same glorious face – and I lost my mind.
My glorious man is no fantasy. He’s real. He’s my family. And, let me tell you, Dear Reader: he’s astonishing in red.
