"Look at her. She's gorgeous," TY said.
I twisted around and checked out the blonde with the perfect body behind me. I smiled awkwardly at the man next to me.
"Sorry," I said to the man. "It's all part of being a good wing girl."
"Oh, she's your wooden duck?" He asked TY.
TY and I laughed.
"Yep," TY said.
"I guess I am," I replied.
"I had a wooden duck for 20 years," the man said. "But just three weeks ago, everything flipped."
"Seriously?" I asked.
He showed us a picture of him with a pretty woman on his camera phone. His whole face smiled.
"So what happened?" I asked.
"I don't know. One night, things just flipped and the next day we didn't know what to do about it. So I said, 'let's go on a date.' We did and we had a great time and we've been crazy about each other ever since."
"Wow. After 20 years, huh?" TY asked.
"So does that mean one day things will just flip for us and we'll fall madly in love?" I asked TY.
"Maybe," he said just as I said, "No way."
Have you ever known buddies who fell in love?
