Until it went all the way
So with my need to keep track of this title and his to read it, eventually, it did come. I was thrilled to tell him and he was equally happy to come in and read it as it was a reference book.
I've not met this guy, I'm guessing he's around eighty or more, but he had the gumption to leave me a dove chocolate rose for my efforts.
My co-workers, as is their want, had to make comment on my gift. There was the question; was it sweet sweet or creepy sweet? Meaning of course, did it come from a stalker or just a nice person. Once they knew it was the latter the sub question was is he cute, why yes, in a golden ager kind of way, at least by his voice.
It's as if even as adults their has to be a slight to remind me of my place, which is of course, right here.
