Jackson "worst poem ever"

That summer day was cooling down just right
We kind of borrowed his dad's custom van
But Rick didn't care he said " it's Friday night"
He punched the gas and headed for Jackson

Determined to party, we had beer on ice
The sun went down just when we got to Main
A quarter mile long, so we ran it twice
Nothing going on, this was getting lame

He swung the van around with a big moan
Cranked up the stereo and yawned real wide
Two girls were standing there at the pay phone
We never did stop, I yelled "want a ride"

Someone did said something, so we backed up
We ended up talking about a double date
The pizza parlor across the street, duh
And just thirty minutes later, well we were late

Pam had this gorgeous sun bleached golden hair
Maria was.. Maria was perfect for Rick
We took off for just about anywhere
The lookout point seemed to do the trick

The love that grew between us was so strong
We got married in Jackson, my Mom's plan
I'm a grandpa now, just where I belong
Late, but he did make it, Rick my best man

    Mitch I am in a rush and want to read this poem later . I just wanted to let you know that I figured out your numbers and you are a double 9. 9 is the highest number, it is like 1 but better becuase it is the "natural charismatic leader" I think I added your numbers wrong in my blog but now I am sure, you are a double nine, life path AND Destiny. See my second blog posted this week for an explanation of the 9 person. LUv, Andrea

    In our young days we were more free to explore instant attractions. As we get older, we're less impulsive. But in this case, you found a lifelong mate, Mitch. Good for you in going with your instincts! Enjoyed your poem!! Love, Carolyn
