A young man spent lots of time in his favorite cafe and always kept an eye on a girl that he thought would be his perfect match. He finally dared to ask the girl if she’d let him buy a coffee for her and shared the table with her.
He was so happy and excited that he accidentally grabbed the salt by mistake and poured it into his coffee. The girl looked at him with shocked eyes, wondering what he was going.
Realizing what he had done, the young man didn’t want to have a weird first date impression, so he told her; “I grew up in a town surrounded by the sea and salty coffee reminds me of my childhood.”
The young couple fell in love after some time and got married.
Every time he wanted to drink a coffee, she stirred two teaspoons of salt in it to continue reminding him of his childhood.
Forty years passed and they lived happily in love until the husband got sick and was on his death bed. He told his wife that he had a confession to make.
He said: “I’m so sorry to say that I lied to you for forty years. I poured salt into my coffee accidentally on our first date. And when I saw your shocked face I made up a story so you wouldn’t think I am a fool. But you continued to pour salt into my coffee out of love and care.
I always hated the salty coffee, but the beautiful way you looked into my eyes when I sipped my awful tasting coffee made me drink it for forty years.
I would have continued drinking it for a million years just to see you look at me that way over and over again.”
