Answer for question 4236.

Have you ever used a pickup line? What was it -- and did it work? What's the worst one you've ever heard?
I was at a business conference and saw woman standing on a balcony that i considered very attractive. I was nerdy, shy, socially inept. I had never used a "pickup line;" i doubt that i knew what that meant. I was standing near a guy who knew her and heard me comment on her beauty. He said he would introduce us. As she walked toward us, i, without waiting to be introduced, blurted out. "How can they expect us to keep our minds on business with beauty like this about." ugg, that line didn't deserve to work, but it did! We married seven months later and will soon celebrate out 54th wedding anniversary.

That's a beautiful story. I hope that your wife continues to recover well at the hospital and that you can enjoy many more happy years together. You are both very lucky to have each other.

This is the most wonderful story ever.
I think that was a fantastic pick-up line and it did indeed work!
