(Not So) New Gold Dream

You’d think by now Single Dad would know better than to talk of such things with his married friends.
     “Aren’t you a bit old for love at first sight?”
     But Single Dad was undeterred: “She was wearing this yellow pantsuit——”
     “So, like Miss Teen Canada 1972?”
     “No, something more. I’d dropped the kids off at school and just happened to be watching when she came out at the top of the stairs. She looked right at me, I’m sure, and the morning sun hit her just so, lit her up with a splash of gold meant just for me.”
