I just had to pass this along

This is an email sent to me by a friend:


She is pregnant, he had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire.

When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest.

A photographer from the Charlotte , North Carolina newspaper, noticed her in the
distance looking at the fireman.  

He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do.
 
As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this

I'm so glad, I'm just afraid someone's going to tell me that snopes.com says it just urban myth.

Oh...I am working on the what if...story but it's forcing me to drag it out of me word by freakin' word, I've reworked the first paragraph like twenty times. Good thing I already know this one's going to be a short one. Eventually.

How about a drabble from you? I've got Pixie trying it...now it's your turn.

I'm so glad, I've never posted an email before and wasn't sure if I should. Seems to have gone over pretty well. I have a lot of respect for the instincts of the photographer, he saw it coming.
