It was a true "Bridges of Madison County" story.
I plan to write a novelette about it, when I retire.

First of all, it takes a man's man to admit that he liked "The Bridges of Madison County" and I'm man enough to admit that I loved it.

Secondly, a big part of the appeal of the original novel "The Bridges of Madison County" comes from the fact that both protagonists were already in their forties. They were both fully baked adults by the time they met, one a wife and mother with two teenagers, the other a guy who had been around the world literally and figuratively.

There's something quite different about the 25-year-old young buck and Miss Roma. Both are great stories but -- let's put it this way -- when they make the movie version of your story, it won't be with 70-year-old Clint Eastwood playing you.
