A little less than 20 years ago, Eileen from Avon was in her father’s car when it broke down. In order to get help she had to look for a telephone. The closest place she could find one was in a nearby pub. She went in to use the phone.
When she went inside the pub, one of the first things she heard was the voice of a man call out to her saying something like, “Bastante pequeña aquí”. That is Spanish for, “Pretty little one, come here.” She looked at him. At first she didn’t trust him because it was as if he was hiding his identity behind his sunglasses.
Moments later Andres would remove his sunglasses and quickly became more approachable. Eventually she sat down and their conversation would last for hours. They got together the next day and have been inseparable ever since. It wasn’t too much longer after that, that Andres brought Eileen home to meet his mother. Now she calls him Andy and they have been together almost 18 years.
The song that really hits home for Eileen is one by Marc Anthony.
