My busy season at work is from July to mid-October. This year is going to be especially bad because I'm the only IT person and I'm on call 24/7. It's been pretty hairy so far... I've been working long hours around the clock.

But... a guy I've known for about ten years sent me a dozen roses, which I received on the same day we started production at work. They're even more awesome because he knows I like opals and the name of the color has "opal" in it and they're all blue, green, yellow and purple.

He knows I'm super busy for the next 100ish days but has officially asked me out for when production is over. He said he's patient and I'm worth the wait.

I know a lot can happen between now and then and it very well may not happen but yeah... it still made me smile.

What a lovely gesture! And the understanding is nice too!

Oooooh, that's fun.

That's such a specific gesture... I think that if you want something to happen, the door seems pretty open.

What a thoughtful and lovely gesture.

I like this one.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!
