Another Reason for Loving Fish Hoek
I could cry!
Yes, cry for joy.
Please let me tell you why…
I was Monday morning shopping in Fish Hoek’s Pick and Pay
and when I reached the till,
I found only twenty rands within my wallet,
Having spent for odds and ends upon my way.
And, as I searched for this week’s shopping money
that I had counted out before I left home,
there was no more.
I wished the floor would open up and swallow me.
But then the guy behind me said,
‘O.K! O.K! I’ll pay.’
He said his name was Chill,
At least, that’s what I thought he said,
But then, of course, I am an Oldie
and could have got it wrong.
But this I know, even if his name was Chill,
his heart was open wide, and warm , and goldie.
And when I tumbled home as fast as I was able
there they were – three hundred rands upon the table.
If Chill should wish to complete this saga of living,
the tears of joy that spilled from his love’s giving,
I would be pleased if he would contemplate
just one quick call on 782 5848..
