            (The older woman comes out, holding a letter to her chest, she is smiling broadly)

A letter!  I got a letter!  No one ever sends letters anymore!  And it's not from a computer, it's written in his own hand.....and what a beautiful handwriting it is!

           (She holds up the paper and marvels)

He must have gone to parochial school, or a private one has nice handwriting like this without a lot of screaming and smacked fingers!

And the way he phrases things.....

(Reading)  'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day...'  Oh, they must have made him memorize all the classics!

          (Looks up, listens)

Oh, yes, dear, he sent it to me even though he lives in the next building over......what a romantic!  I can't believe it, I'm 93 years old tomorrow, and I think I'm blushing!

           (She puts her head down)

And yet, I find it hard to believe that......I feel like I did the first time I met him......back in high, not husband......I feel....the same that possible?  At this age?

           (She folds the letter up and tucks it into her blouse)

Yes, I'm going to let him know how I feel.....but not this minute.....not right now.....I'm enjoying this too much......

           (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And if I respond too quickly, he might think....I'm easy!

            (She laughs and exits.....never too late for a teenage romance)
