Norman is a flirt

NORMAN Wyatt, I love you.

If I were 30 years older, and you were 30 years younger, I reckon we'd totally be an item.

You'd be 62. I would be a sprightly 56. It would be perfect.

Rebecca Danslow interviewed Norman for our newest section, Everyone has a Story.

I met Norman a couple weeks ago on a Gladstone Harbour tour.

His niece approached our photographer and said we should write a story about him.

So, I wandered over to have a chat.

And I'm so glad I did.

Norman made my day. He might be 94 but he's still got it. He's an absolute charmer.

Norman, you could teach blokes my age a thing or two about wooing a girl.

He held my hand and looked me in the eye.

He asked questions. And he was interested in the answers.

I asked Norman if we could do a story on him and he said yes.

Then he gave me his address.

"Be careful," Norman's niece warned. "He's a flirt!"

"So am I," I replied. Norman loved it.

But Norman one-upped this flirt.

I said my goodbyes and as I was turning to leave, he planted a massive kiss on my cheek.

Boys, take note. That's how it's done.

Everyone has a story. Do you know one that is begging to be told?
