Beethoven and Nixie – a Love Story
It was hot that day, too hot for late July in Sacramento. The California State Fair was packed, throngs of people weaving their way through the carnival atmosphere.
He caught my eye, standing out from the growing crowd. Taller than I expected, he had long, silken hair, highlighted by the setting sun, and the most exquisite smile I had ever seen. I was drawn to him like a compass needle to magnetic north.
After a brief introduction we walked off together, and I couldn’t hide a shy smile. After crossing a small bridge, I offered him some of my trailmix, and he must have liked them, as he kissed me…and I was smitten.
His name was Beethoven, and he was a dream come true. It was love at first sight.
