The Sweetest Thing
On Monday afternoon I was traveling on a bus, on my way to see Boyfriend. He was supposed to meet me about eight blocks from the bus stop, so when the bus stopped, I hopped off and began to walk. I got a call on my cell phone - from him - and he asked me why I was walking so fast. I raised an eyebrow. Was I breathing heavily when I answered the phone? Why would he think I was walking fast? I said, "I'm not," and he replied, "Yes, you are, I can't catch up with you." I whirled around to catch a glimpse of him behind me, halfway down the block, with flowers.
This is the second time he has surprised me with flowers. He did it one morning while I was still interning, called me at the office and told me to come downstairs.
Il Migliore, I swear.
Now, remember that teeny tiny problem I mentioned when I first wrote about him? Yeah, that one. In ten days, he is moving away due to circumstances beyond our control. 1,800 miles from me.
So, our days are numbered. Virtual breakdown imminent. Stay tuned readers.
