Taken For A Ride

The horse drawn carriage pulled up to the curb.  The young man hopped out and went to the door of the house they were in front of.  Opening the door was a beautiful young woman.  She gasped when she saw the carriage.

The man said, “your chariot awaits madam.”  He took a bow and gestured to the carriage.  The woman giggled a little and reached behind the door for her jacket.

“I just never know what you are going to do next.  You are so sweet!” she said with a beaming smile.

“Only the best for my gal,” he said.

U is for unicorn

Okay, I know they are not real but they are my favorite mythical being.  I started a small unicorn collection in middle school and still have a handful of them that I cherish.  I suppose it goes in line with my love of horses as a unicorn is just a horned horse with magical properties.  They even got a small part in the Harry Potter films and books.  An entire movie was done for The Last Unicorn (which is a very sad thought).  They are in many different cultures and even religions.  Let’s face it… you wish they were real too!
