    in a supermarket, kurtis the stock boy was busily stocking when a new voice came over the pa system, for a carry out at register 4. kurtis was almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air, and decided to answer the call. as he approached the check-out stand a distant smile caught his eye, the new check out girl was beautiful. she was an older woman, (maybe 26, and he was only 22) and he fell in love.
    later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock to find out her name. she came into the break room, smiled softly at him, took her card and punched out, then left. he loooked ta her card, brenda. he walked out only to see her start walking up the road.
    next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket, and offered her a ride home. he looked harmless enough, so she accepted. when he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he could see her again, outside of work. she simply said it wasn't possible. he pressured her, and she explained she had two children and she couldn't afford a baby-sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitter. reluctantly she accepted his offer for a date the following saturday.
    that saturday night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him that she was unable to go with him. the baby-sitter called and canceled. to which kurtis simply said, "well let's take the kids with us."
    she tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but again he pressured. finally brenda brought him inside, to meet her children. she had an older daughter that was just as cute as a bug, kurtis thought, then brenda brought out her son, in a wheelchair. he was born a paraplegic with down syndrome. kurtis asked brenda, "i still don't understand why the kids can't come with us?" brenda was amazed. most men would run away from a woman with two kids, ecspecially if one had disabilities. just like her first husband and father of her children did.
    that evening kurtis and brenda loaded up the kids, went out to dinner and the movies. when her son needed anything kurtis would take care of him. when he needed to use the restroom, he picked him up out of his chair, took him, and brought him back. the kids loved kurtis. at the end of the evening, brenda knew this was the man she was going to marry and spend the rest of her life with. a year later, they were married and kurtis adopted both of her children. since then they have added two more kids.
    so what happened to the stock boy and the check out girl? well mr & mrs kurt warner, now live in st. louis, where he is employed by the st. louis rams and plays quarterback for the football team. kurtis......will be playing in the 2002' superbowl.

    this story touched me immensly for some reason........i'll leave it at that...........

    just me...............

    Wow. What a great story..... *sigh*

    I'll be pulling for St. Louis in the superbowl now. I won't watch it (ewww), but I'll hope St. Louis wins.

    Based on the names of the team, I don't think they really have a chance. It's St. Louis (one town) against the whole New England region. Pretty badly outnumbered, population-wise.

    Although when I lived near there, there were some pretty rough areas of St. Louis, and St. Louis does have a reputation as a rough and ready city, businesslike and thorough. And although there area lot of tough customers in the general New England area, as a region, they have a fairly stilted, namby-pamby kind of PR.

    Okay, I think St. Louis has a shot! With a cool guy like that as quarterback, how can they lose?
