We’ll always have Ennis…


Every year, as the calendar smiles at Feb. 14, unlikely men can be seen ambling up and down the streets, carrying roses, red beribboned gift bags and boxes of chocolate. It is a sight to behold. I always want to stop and talk with them – each one of them. I’m curious about what’s in the bag, how they thought of it, and if I’d approve. Invariably, these men will lament that they can’t find a card which delivers the appropriate message. “Write your own,” I always suggest with enthusiasm, and that deer-in-the-headlights look suddenly finds its way to their faces. “Write my own?” each will repeat back to me, as froth gathers in the corners of his mouth. I get the sense that writing down personal sentiments is more difficult than saying, in the presence of an ordained minister, “I do.” So as students continue their writing exercises for standardized tests, I want to help their fathers. Get your pen out and take notes. If you look like Tom Cruise, you don’t really have to say anything. But if you can’t replicate his looks, you might want to take a line out of the movie, “Jerry Maguire.” Read this story and more in your Weekend edition of The Ennis News.
