Heart Murmurs: A Leap Year Story (part 3)

What a night. My parents set me up with a date, and against my better judgment, I went. He was a nice enough guy, and he was obviously attracted to me, but he’s not what I’m looking for. Let’s be honest, he wasn’t him. I’ve got to stop comparing all of these poor fools to him; they’ll never match up.  I think my parents are starting to get desperate now. They really want me to find someone and get married. I think they’re worried that I won’t give them grandchildren while they’re alive. There’s a lot of pressure on me right now. I’m constantly reminded that they are not getting any younger, and for that matter, neither am I. It’s times like this that I really wish they had have had a second child. Perhaps then there wouldn’t be so much pressure on me.
