Tagline: Kelly and Steve had briefly met, but it took a matchmaking grandma to get their romance off the ground...
In a Nutshell: Kelly is reluctant to go on a blind date with the grandson of a woman who resides at the assisted living residence where she works. She has her eye on a man who goes to the movies every weekend by himself, just like she does. Turns out he is the grandson.
Observations: I loved this story. If you're a fan of Woman's World stories, then you knew immediately that the grandson and the mystery man were one and the same person. (Or is it one in the same?) But I still felt that worry when he said he was there with a date. The grandma was great after the movie, the perfect blend of pushy and loving.
There were also a couple of places where we see evidence that these two are compatible. During the movie, Kelly is thinking about Steve...
Most of the residents at the assisted living facility where she worked hardly had visitors, let alone visitors who took them out to the movies. That said a lot about Steve.
And later, when Kelly cracks jokes, Steve laughs. We all know how important it is that a couple share a sense of humor.
I really had zero complaints about this story.
