Every time I drive my 560SL convertible I remember Cori Falk the girl of my dreams, the girl I was 100% sure I was going to marry and live happily ever after as soon as we graduate High School.
Then her father sent her way for the summer during her senior year to Europe as a gift for graduating HS.
She met a guy there, and is now married with 5 kids. The second to the youngest child called me to ask about New York City, which she was planning to visit for the first time in her life.
I picked her up at the airport to take her to her hotel, and once I saw her face, she looked just like her mother. I could not believe the resemblance.
So there I am with a broken heart to this day, with the daughter of the girl who sat next to me in the same car many years ago, now I am driving her daughter and watching her hair flying in the wind ...just like her mother's.
