“By the way, thank you SO much for the bouquet,” she said.
And then, wistfully and with her hand placed gently over her heart, “It was beautiful. But I especially loved the quote the most.”
“The quote?” At this point I was thoroughly confused.
“Go on,” she said, indicating that I should proceed with what I’d been discussing before the interruption.
“Uh, right, ok so…” And I continued on. I had a lot to cover, and considering I had no idea what she was talking about, I flippantly disregarded her bizarrely misplaced references to flora and literature.
A short while later, I got back to my desk. That is when it hit me. And BOY did it hit me. I immediately reached for my cell phone and sent the following text message to The Brit:
“I just had a meeting with my boss. I think I just located the final destination of those elusive Valentine’s Day flowers you attempted to have delivered to me at the office. She said she especially loved the quote. So…what sweet nothing did I just send to my dear boss?”To which he responded:
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return." -ToulouseOh dear.
You have taught me so much and given me even more. I love you with everything I have, I am so grateful and am so happy to be with you. Love, The Brit
