I couldn’t believe I was about to miss my date for the night! I’d kept “Joe” waiting all day. He was flexible and didn’t mind that I’d not been able to set a definite time. His schedule was open until 9 p.m.
But where did the afternoon and the evening go? How did 1:30 turn into 8:15?
Jumping in my car, I quickly calculated that if I hit all the lights just right, I could maybe get 30 minutes with him. Those 30 minutes would be wonderful. I’d take them and enjoy every moment.
Like me, “Joe” loves good food. Though he’s a year younger than me, he seems so much wiser in the “ways of the world.”
Like me, “Joe” loves variety. Though his house is not that big, he has “mementoes” from many lands.
Like me, “Joe” likes good wine. Though he might choose something expensive, his “signature” bottles are, well, cheap.
Like me, “Joe” loves to have fun. Though he’s quite serious about business, he always looks like he’s going to a luau.
Like me, “Joe” loves communication. Though he’s not one for sitting down too long, he’ll “ring my bell” when something needs said.
Like me, “Joe” can be full of surprises. Though he’s often sure and steady, he’s always got something new and different for me to try.
Ah, “Joe,” forgive me for being late and thanks for unlocking the door when it was time for me to leave at 9:30.
Can’t wait to do it again soon!!!
