An assumption

Today, was an absolutely amazing day.

Polly has two dogs. She was going to take them to the beach at lunch, I asked if I could accompany and she said yes. So today an average boy and an amazingly beautiful girl and two adorable dogs got in the car, and drove to the beach. The windows down, sun shining, music pumping. And we talked, and laughed, although most of the time was spent in comfortable mutual silence, which was nice.

We arrived at the beach, I had one dog on a lead and she had the other, and we walked side by side down to the shore. We took off our shoes once we reached the sand and took off the leads on the dogs, whom immediately took off running, like excited dogs at the beach do, leaving Polly and I to walk along after them. The sand in our toes, the sea breeze on our faces, the warmth of the sun watching over.

Whilst walking we talked, and laughed, and there wasn't much silence this time, but there still was some, but it was a comfortable mutual silence, which was nice. We got our feet wet, and laughed at the dogs playing. I love the freedom that an empty, flat beach gives you, so I took off running as fast as I could with the dogs chasing and running all around me in some unbeknownst to me agreed upon game. I sprinted nearly as fast as the dogs. I like to think that Polly was watching me while I ran, perhaps thinking something nice about me.

We stayed on that beach for over an hour. It was peaceful, fun... it was very 'couple like'...

At random intervals we would pass another dog owner, sometimes it was a family, sometimes it was an individual, sometimes it was a couple. I liked the fact that these other people once they seen us, an average boy and an amazingly beautiful girl and two adorable dogs, that they would no doubt assume that we were a couple. And I loved that, I really did. Of course it was a false assumption, because no we are not a couple, but it was really nice to at least just for the afternoon be the image of that assumption.

And I have known this for such a long time, that I miss, and want in the future, that someone to walk dogs with, or to go to a restaurant, or to be forced to see those silly chick flicks on a Saturday night at the movies just because you know she wants to and it would mean a lot to her if you went and seen it with her. To be a couple. I have been wondering why it hasn't happened already to be honest... it has been a terribly long time since it last was.

So while it may not happen with Polly, I just hope that someday soon an average boy and an amazingly beautiful girl and two adorable dogs are seen by other dog owners at the beach, and the people who see them would no doubt assume that they are a couple, and their assumption would be correct.

This is such a sweet post. The only thing I didn't like about it was that you called yourself average. I think that you're selling yourself a bit short there. Nobody is truly average. Everybody has something about them that makes them extraordinary. Don't count yourself out.

I am glad you liked it. Haha... yeah, thanks S. Love, you are right of course. Actually, the more I think of it, the more I realize that you are right, I will not let it happen again =)
