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?
