Take what you can get

A popular aphorism is that love presents itself in the least expected moment and form. 

A firm knock resounded and I sprang forth from the couch in anticipation. I sauntered to the door with great confidence, for I knew who awaited on the other side. As I opened the door, time seemed to unravel in slow motion. Before me appeared a vision of divine beauty and surreal perfection. In that instant, I understood with pure clarity the power of love at first sight. No, the object of my radiant affection was not the delivery man who stood before me...no, it was the Chinese takeout paper bag cradled against his chest.
