Ocado delivery came in the twilight last night. A tall young delivery guy walked up to my door, his hand outstretched, and my missing silver chain bracelet in his hand.
"Did you lose this?" he said.
"Yes! Thank you! Where was it?"
"I noticed it in the pebbles on the dark path to your door".
I thanked him again. He was Estonian and quite handsome.
Should I invite him in?
No, but this is the way life should be. Not furtive hook-ups on phone apps.
